OK, some of those are definitely ugly, but I think this one looks great.

I have always thought those were crazy weird looking, but I’d definitely play one. :slight_smile:

Thank goodness it’s not just me. I really dislike the Danelectro’s too.

But I like a lot of the other basses in this thread. I generally like unusual basses much more than the Fender look :rofl:

Agree. I really like this one.

I mean, when I think ugly, I think Fender with a bad burst :rofl:

Now that is fugly. And they want 3800 euros for that thing.

That’s because those aren’t ugly, those are fantastic.

I am fully down with my favorite basses being called freaks by people who just don’t get it, though.

I love my SBV to death. I would rather own this bass than any product Fender, Musicman, or Gibson have ever made.

Same would go for a Billy-Bo:

Or a Stream:

Fender have had some bad colours for sure. I think Antigua is up there for the worst colour ever to be used on any instrument. They must have got it cheap somewhere. It’s the only logical explanation.

Oh that’s good. That’s one of the worst bursts I have ever seen. @terb posted that one before and yeah, agree, it’s hard to top.

Double-P Buzzard, nice. Yeah that color - well it could be worse, but it’s not doing any favors.

I do absolutely love the fret inlays though.
