    One model with neck-dive, one without. :lol:

    Actually, maybe something is wrong with me, but those don't look that bad to me. In fact, the top one reminds me of the Vai Alien guitar a little.

    I used to have a yellow Yamaha ^^ like that!

    I couldn't believe how fast it sold when I put it at a shop for consignment.

    Does that bass have a 45" scale length or what? That looks waaay longer than standard. Maybe just the Jazz bass string spacing and 36 frets?

    I swear to god, I know it's a cartoony looking bone, but that just looks like testicles to me.

    Brand name is Tune. You can actually get this one on ebay for $1667. There's not much information about its condition, though.

    I tend to question the necessity of 36 frets on a guitar, but I REALLY don't get why you'd want it on a bass...

    Pondman, I really think you should honor your favorite of these builds and do a Pondversion to present to the original "luthier" how you interpret their contributions to humanity. I don't think it's what you were born to do, but I think you're the most skilled at both finding these masterpieces of garbage while simultaneously being the best of us at building actual masterpieces.
