Back when I was a teen, I was making out with this girl, when I had the bright idea of putting my hand inside her panties.

She had her period.

It's been sold. But even asking what price it sold for is on request only

If I found the person with that bass, I would either steal it, ir scratch it out of spite...

I am sure Ritter basses are quite wonderful sounding, but they seem slightly excessive like diamonds on the soles of your shoes.
#9
I wonder how they sound.

I mean, really- were mammoths and diamonds and millenia-old woods made for acoustics? :P

Even if they sounded nice, I'd be afraid to touch one- much less play. Or slap-style. Oh god.
#10
How about this one... Flora Aurum. Reported to be the most expensive bass ever made. It has ivory made from mammoth tusks for the nut for goodness sake! TBH, it looks like a piece of art than an instrument.

#11
That's one of the Ritter Royals. None of those babies have a price- you have to request, have someone call you, and then they tell you. You can even have the guy call you himself.

Also, for the note, all the Royals and at least a majority of the normal Ritters have mammoth tusk bone for the nut. But considering the size, half a tusk will last decades of nut usage.

Go down to "The Mythos." 40 frets. Incredible.

And they use mammoth tusk nuts on many of their basses. I wonder how they got their hands on that.


Is it even possible to fret the 40th fret? I think not - useless.

Although they are beautiful, look at the Flora Platinum, amazing piece of wood.
#16
Dear lord! Those are incredible and insane. Is it really needed to have a like extinct wood used for your bass? Or to have an extinct animals bone used on it? You would think a museum or something would get angry about that.

Who would actually buy one of those? Would be terrified to play one. End up smudging it with finger prints and like **** up everything.

Real bassists know about different techniques and are aware of the merits and applications of each.

Because we're the least ignorant, most hardworking and most talented musicians in the world. We also surpass all others in general awesomeness.

I am glad someone else feels that way. I just find it more than a bit irresponsible and reprehensible they do use these materials. Its not art to me, but an act of turpitude.

A quick blow-up of that picture makes it look like anything after 25-27 is useless. :\

All in all, good to look at, impossible to buy, unthinkable to play. The European aristrocacy of the bass world.

How good can they POSSIBLY sound? I mean come on.

Its easy--yesterday's low rent bass is tomorrow's collector item. Teidesco basses and guitars that were cheap knocks are now vintage collectibles.

Free your mind and the possibilities are quite endless! And greatness is relative and opinionated, so what I think is great may not be your cuppa.

If Liberace had been a bassist we would have used a Ritter.


Liberace would be afraid of his diamond coats scratching the neck
So, goin’ down the Amazon in a light green ’57 Chevy, uh. Well, you think that’s, um, kind of heavy?
#25
It almost seems unethical to use mammoth ivory... shouldn't that stuff be in museums or something?

It's like they hire thieves to plunder archaeological sites to make their bass stuff
#27
I believe PRS have used a Mammoth Tusk in only one of their guitars.

Damn, I wanted it bad...
