I know I'm really being a primus fanboy just for asking but...whats the closest thing you can get to the rainbow bass that isn't custom-made?

thanks in advanced!!!

Well, not too many basses come with trems, for one.

Rainbow bass, not his main 4 string.

Nothing comes close. Get a Brice fretless.

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

Yuppers. Ain't gonna get nothin' close unless you ask Carl to make you one (he'll refuse to make it exactly the same) and that'll cost you a lot of bread. Or you can build one yourself.

He refuses to make any bass's that he makes for les claypool or that other guy. Something like 4 grand for a no frills bass.

Ya, give up dude. Just get a 6 string fretless. The Rainbow bass uses way to many different woods.

The rainbow bass is a one and only.

Btw...Carl is making a few no frills basses for about 2700 USD. But since that is more than my monthly mortgage on my house, I'll not be ordering one anytime soon.

Most of the instruments Carl makes for both Claypool and Stanley Clarke won't be mass produced.

But as I said before, he DOES still make Rainbow basses. He will NOT make you one like Les's, will use different woods, and arrange them to give it a unique look. For at least one example, go to his Six Strings basses page in the Pictures page, there's one at the bottom. My dream Rainbow bass would involve Ebony, Purpleheart, and lots of dark Walnut..

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.
