Oh man yes, MTD basses are so drool-inducing. I’ve played a few really nice old custom MTDs, you’re reigniting my lust for them just by mentioning the name lol.
Happy Halloween, indeed.
Haha!!! Brutalllllll. Is anyone but Gene Simmons allow to play it?
This one’s (visually alone) a beauty:
What do you have that tuned to? Don’t they come in a lower tuning from the factory?
I really like the Spector Bantam 4:
Wooooow that’s crazy pretty. Would love to see it in action, looks like it was make of fluorescent asteroid bits or something.
When I want to see sexy basses, I just take a bit of time over on Ritter Instruments. That dude’s designs are off the charts.
Hoooo boy… what a beauty
WOOOOW that’s pretty stuff.
My next bass is definitely going to be a Gibson . . . was thinking about the SG, but right now I’m really gassing over this one:
I know it’s an extravagance, but it’s something I’ve always wanted . . . probably another throwback to the early 70’s, and because John Entwistle played one back then . . .
(spending my children’s inheritance one bass at a time )
All best, Joe
HA. That bass sure is purdy. I’ve never played a Thunderbird, but I want to now!
The Chowny’s are all gorgeous. I was just looking at their page last night. I like the Warwick-like tuning machine angle on some of their models. I love the look of the RetroVibe signature model they did for Davie504, and the NT5 looks fantastic both aesthetically and feature-wise:
Based on what I am looking in to now I am loving that SWB short scale too. Thanks for the tip there.
+1 @howard See my post in this thread from May 13
I am thinking of taking a trip to London just to be able to test-drive the NT-4/NT-5
Hah, same pic even
@Jazzbass19 - I LOVE the Thunderbirds. The neck-through is absolutely crucial to the vibe. Don’t go for a bolt on if you want the true experience! Annnd - play them. They have a very signature, focused sound. It doesn’t work for every job or every application but it is spectacular.
It always makes me want to play super loud through a tube guitar head with a pick.
