What a fabulous bass! Most of my current employers would probably have an apoplectic fit if I turned up on a gig with that, but it would be SO worth it! 🙂

Thanks @Quatschmacher I do already have one of these. I can confirm these are fantastic, great sounding very funky  Spacebasses. 

GLWYS @marcblum I really like the custom made flight case for this bass and that the strap has been repositioned. My one has some neck dive issues, so it makes total sense to do this.

I have one of these. Great sounding and well made. I can confirm that the strap buttons need repositioning from the factory placement to combat neck dive. Like Bootsy I put mine on the lower ‘cutaway’ which works well.

It might look like a novelty bass, but underneath it’s on a par with my German made Warwick Infinity SN for sound and playability (obviously cheaper wood and hardware choices)  It definitely gets you a lot of attention!

Tonewise I would keep it.

But I'm a sixstring man and each time I go for 4, I realize again and again, that it does not work for me.

Guys, we're running out of time. Last opportunity to grab that beauty before silly customs fee kicks in.

Fair point. There may also be an issue with CITES if Boris does manage to pull the drawbridge up on the 31st. You could need a manufacturer's certificate to import it because of the rosewood. If anyone wants this, they'd better buy it now!

This is fantastic! But I could only play it at the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services. ☹
