I like it. A new shape that doesn't look too far fetched.
Why not? We've seen enough Telecasters, Strats en Les Pauls.

I think it will sell; the more I look at it, the better I like it.  I'll bet it will balance well, too.

I guess they'll find out if the market is ready for something other than a J, P or Mustang.

Has any really new design from Fender or Gibson sold well in the past 30 years?

My prediction: it won't last.

Greco used to be Ibanez for the domestic market (being Japan)

Yes and no. Most of their electric lines were the identical guitars and basses sold under different names, but the brand names were owned by two unrelated companies.

It's only $7, but if you buy it then you have to pay Heather Mills $50 million.

Did you see the news about the power outage at CES yesterday? Probably Gibson's fault!  :mrgreen:

It looks nice in a late 70s - early 80s way. At 5.2 kg I'd pass unless I had played one and knew the balance was good. Not that I would pay that asking price.

Well, that's some bullshit. The first image I uploaded to Imgur just shows up as a question mark in a blue box.

I just drag (from my hard drive) and drop to upload to my Images page on Imgur. It's worked every time.

I use imgur, no issues yet! I upload photos to albums on there which I set to private. I then right click on each image and hit 'open in new tab'. I can then copy the URL in the browser into the image upload thingy here and on other forums.

...

In your own albums, you should just be able to click on the image and then look for the Linked BB URL in the right panel, copy and paste directly into your post.

Maybe you're thinking about my Photobucket alert thread: http://bassoutpost.com/index.php?topic=10667.0

imgur is still working fine for me.

Both of them are very nice. Ridiculous premium on the Entwistle one.

...another little known Waylon-ism: his signature Tele's were set-neck (rarer than hen's teeth too- the Waylon Tele's currently  for sale online I have found are "tribute" Fender CS models and NOT his actual signature model).

I have a friend whose main bass for years has been a moccasin-style, leather-covered '74 Precision. The cover on it is VERY thick. Don't know if it adds anything to the tone.

I didn't know that. The 90s Custom Shop artist series Waylon model was definitely a bolt-on. Wildwood has one for sale now.

Well, it's different, all right. Not sure that I like it. I give Warwick credit for trying different designs.
