Well, at least with this bass he can get 100% of the profits, maybe.

And finally, a bass that he can play and make him look pretty.

EDIT: I shouldn't be so mean - I think starting out kids with something that's cool is a great idea - hopefully he can bring some rock star cred to beginners. I'm actually quite charmed and heartwarmed by the product.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

I think its a neat idea for kids who wants to play. At 10 years old the neck of a Squier would be intimidating and any girl who wants to play bass probably doesn't want her bass to be pink and shaped like a flower lol.

yeah, that green thing looked exactly like something I would have played. I would have been a little freaked by a normal bass.

keeping the black/white one was a great idea though. just in case someone pro likes the tone and isn't much for bright and cheery.

Sterling by Musicman versus this. Should be an interesting contest for '09. Gotta say, these look 'cute' and more appealing to the eye. How's the pickguard staying on?

cheap glue.

cheaper than screws, and it may hide a poorly made pickup joint easier.

not bad to the instrument's sound, but it can make your pickup less well placed if they hide huge square holes.

all hypothesis.

Meh, I was thinking that. I think they'd look a tad nicer without the pickguard.

I was told that Modulus refused to create a cheaper Flea Bass for people not willing to shell that kind of cash and Flea created these basses.
