Getting up and changing thrones in the middle of a song doesn't hinder anything no......use a fucking cable hi hat for christs sake. Sorry, that setup bothered me the first time I saw it and it just gets worse every time I see it. I guess some people feel the same way about my setup though.

Anyway, the white bubinga kit is where it's at. Screw marigold sparkle :puke:
It is a bit over-the-top, but it's just fucking cool. The way it looks, I mean. I seriosuly doubt I could play it in the sense of using everything, but It's just cool to look at. More of a novelty thing, I guess.

And yes, white is the shiz. The marigold kinda makes me want to gag.

Ok, imagine a chapman stick. Now get rid of the strings, so essencially you only have the neck. Where the strings were, have a grid system of "tapping buttons" that would take the place of the strings. It'd be a flat, iPhone like neck with touch buttons. Where each string would be there'd be a button, and you'd tap it, and it'd play that note. So it's kind of like a digital, LCD/touch chapman stick. whatever.
that sort of thing exists, only with 6 strings like guitar and buttons instead of lcd (why'd you want lcd/touch anyway?) like this one: http://www.starrlabs.com/Z7s.htm

No pictures of my real dream instrument since I've never seen anything I would consider perfect, but this one is pretty damn close and it's waiting for me at home :)

I wish I'd live in the US when it comes to instruments. You can snag a used Kubicki there, for anywhere between 800-1200$
I've only seen two for sale at Europe, both in the UK ebay. The first one went for 700£ and there's currently another one at 799£. Obviously too much, but its not like there's many options..

If you like Steinbergers check these out.

Tim Miller, uses Klein and rips shit up
Listen to his track Untied. His tone and phrasing are spot on.

I would, but I havent been able to find a Kubicki yet. Blows, as
I managed to sell my Spector Rebop, which means I can fund my next bass.

I'm also keeping an eye out on this beast:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/STATUS-SERIES-...QQcmdZViewItem

Just emailed the seller and asked if he'd ship here..

This badboy, with 2 bass drums:



Golden Madrone finish



On a rack, with my cymbal setup, maybe a couple tweaks to it.

Played this the other day:




Hands down, one of the best guitars I have ever played... it could also have something to do with it being cranked through the new EVH 5150 iii... but thats another story.

Now if I could get a maple neck through, with no inlays and mahogany OR alder bodied MII with Dimarzio's (EVO 2 bridge and Al Di Meola neck) coil tapped, with a concentric pot with seperate pickup volumes and one master volume... and a floyd rose, gotoh tuners and black hardware. In an Olympic White finish...


that would be my dream instrument I reckon.

Getting frustrated already.. The seller emailed back and told me its only open to bidders in the UK. I'm always having terrible GAS after all high end basses when I can afford one. I should just wait for the right deal, instead of forcing myself to find something
