Word on the street
"These instruments must be seen to be believed and they sound as good as they look. Everyone gravitates toward the wall where these instruments hang when they walk into my studio. I have a 6-string Turbo Diddly with all nickel finishing and I also have Bass #0001 which I believe you can see a picture of on his website (look for the "Long scale bass" in the electric guitar gallery). There are many words that can be used to describe these instruments but I think the one that best sums it up is, SWEET!"
