Older players (OK, me) might remember the rather offensive "Tokai is coming" advert. No, don't search for it - your hard drive will be of interest to The Squad for years. Imagine, though, if this brand new Musicvox Spaceranger used the same campaign - ouch Shocked

It's worth reading the auction for some hilarious hype about how you'll get noticed on stage. It doesn't tell you that you'd get much the same effect, cheaper, wearing those comedy breasts.


props to Talkbass website for flagging this in 2007, as a search just revealed. Thought I'd seen one before. Still ugly, though.

Another buy-new. The Fret King Ventura bass.



Now, Trev Wilkinson deserves a lot of credit. Decent quality hardware for a very reasonable price. And I can understand the thought "wouldn't it be great if a single bass had that Jazz bridge honk, the Precision thump and the EB0 mudbucker tone?" as long as you quickly dropped the idea.

Putting them into an ugly body with an ugly headstock and charging a very unreasonable 729? Me neither.

Now this is just a silly take on the Travel Bass idea, right?

Oh, hang on, is that a "skull" paintjob? Rolling Eyes

Whoa-hoh, wow. You really need to click on the auction link while it's still up. Not only is this copper-topped, snake-wrapped monstrosity truly hideous, the asking price of $1999 is completely bonkers. In the description, the bought-in neck came from Mighty Mite. I ask you...

Is this the ugliest? Probably not. Stupidest? Oh yes. If you've hankered for a bass guitar that you flip over to play lead guitar with restricted upper fret access, this is your only option.

Note the "street value" in the descn and the nicely done rear (front? rear? front?) control covers. Barking.

Good to see you back, with some gold again. Live busker shot - must be a first for the 'ugly' thread, surely?
