Lot of money for a bass that looks like a daft cartoon animal's head.

Nice wood,though.

To me it is one of the ugliest basses I have ever seen.

 

But then again I like Precision basses.

Nikola adamovic makes amazing instruments

one of the best luthier out there

3k is fair price

he only build 2 basses a year so there is at least couple of years wait and a new one would set you off at around 5k so price seem fair to me

Agreed and  i like the bass, but i  dont play 5 's or contras.  But if that was a 4 string regular 34" and  £500 i'd be tempted  :)

Don't normally like single cuts but this is very tasteful and rather sexy.

"European Crotch Walnut"? Nasty. Will probably require surgery...

Nope just some anti-fungal ointment.

I'd take a wild guess and say a bass builder of Adamovic's  experience and quality, dont make headstocks as an ' afterthought '

Agreed. It's wilfully incongruous and quite deliberately hideous.

Personal taste is a pointless debate

Indeed. And therefore this entire thread, every opinion expressed herein, and even its title, is pointless. And following that rule, so are roughly 93.72% of all the topics and posts that have ever been made on BC.

Anyway, I'm off to have an existential breakdown over the pointless futility of my worthless existence. Again.

I quite like it, and I don't usually like those big woody swoopy things... it looks kinda classical... and it looks expensive.

Trying to think of where i've seen that odd headstock before - was it Cliff Bordwell basses ?

Agreed. I'm no particular fan of this type of bass but on balance I think it looks quite good.
