I agree with the most of you that the guitar looks better. But I want to see the 4-string. 5-strings just look too bulky.

Strange: With most 'strange' models like the Tbird, the Gretsch Billy Bo and some more I like the bass version better. A longer neck looks better with those body shapes.

I'd like to see the bass version of the Fender Meteora that Dave posted the other day. I bet that it would look awesome.

Exactly my thoughts... ...although Fender will ruin it with a PJ ;)

But of course!

I will post them soon, but I just saw a 4-string idolmaker. Much better!

I don't like the colour combination with gold hardware, but I do like the shape.

That doesn't look like it will balance well.

It looks like an EB-2 melt-morphing into a Thunderbird.

Yep.

But not that original - a lot of boutique Thunder/Firebird copies do that exact same thing with the raised portions of the body (while retaining a generally more T/Fbird shape).

I agree with Jake.
I do like the lines but subjective review of the color combos would be critical.
