Limited run of Simon's new bass in 2017
Good news for those who were hoping to be able to buy their own version of Simon's new yellow bass, Schecter has plans to do a limited run of them, starting Jan. 1st, 2017.
The bass was designed by Nancy Dorothy Wakeman, and she posted some info on her design here:
"The Cure are currently out on a year long world tour. Earlier this year, I was comissioned by the bassist, Simon Gallup, to help him design a new bass, exclusively for this 2016 tour. He had a vague idea of what he was after, he wanted some kind of English lion, a rose, and it absolutely had to be yellow!
The illustration style of the lion is intended to resemble a woodcut print, this was a decision I made in order to give the lion a sense of age and history."
Update (Nov. 23rd, 2016): Eric got an update, sort of, on this : "No news yet. We will be making that announcement shortly via facebook, twitter, and our website."
