Quite a nice looking bass although I am not overly taken with the aluminium pickguard as that looks a bit "home workshop" to me. Like the body and fretboard though.

Bass looks ok, not too happy with the look through paint job ..... but the three pickup Revstar is very interesting. :D

I agree we do need more bass players here :)

I do intend to get a bass at some point, just need to free up some space and some cash.
