    Traded an old cheap bass I had for this little guy today. A “Phat” Strat style. Definitely a one of a kind. Two tone relic’d gold on antique white finish. Neat pinstripes. Kinda of flamy neck that is really chunky like a 50s Tele. Pickups are very Stratty. Seems like a fun guitar. Never heard of the brand. Maybe just a one off? Let me know what you folks think!

    You may be right. I traded a nice but inexpensive LTD bass for it.

    It’s either a one off, or they licensed the Fender headstock shape (highly unlikely), or they’re in trademark violation.

    Are there side dots? I have to admit that I am dependent on fret markers on the fingerboard.

    Otherwise, nice guitar!

    Yes there are. I was a lil concerned about that, but I can live with side dots. The neck is chunky as all heck. It’s like an upright bass.

    Nice Catch, that's the neck I wish was on all my guitars!
