Really love how this looks but I can't get behind the Roadworns. Up close they're not convincing enough. Uncanny valley.

I get that... but I like the idea of a decent spec Mustang Bass on the market, road worn or no.

It's real nice.

I would give it the tort guard / white pickup treatment to make it my own though. Pisspearl ain't my bag

Love the potato chip tuners and that it has a 9.5" fretboard radius.

Hate the relicing however. If they offered a NOS version I would be sorely tempted to get one. If it also had contours I would definitely get one!

But the fake wear and tear is just not my cup of tea. So that's a deal breaker for me.

He was Beck's bandleader for a decade plus, did a lot of road gigs with NIN, produced a lot of albums including a bunch of Paramore, worked on a zillion soundtracks including the Devil's Rejects.
