“Got my nitro Bombshell bass a couple weeks ago and damn,  what a great instrument. Plays and sounds as good if not better than my old fender, impressive as hell!”

“Yes, I received it. Wow. First five string bass, first green guitar I’ve ever owned!!! Just to make sure it’s as awesome as my last one from HLK I took it on a few test laps and tried a couple tuning variations and  I’m hooked!!! As usual the set up is on point, the neck, frets and the intonation are perfect all the way up and down. It’s a big ol’ bass!!! Not as heavy as it looks, however, and it feels like it would be cool for any lengthy gig. Two time Rat Bastard, I am, and twice as proud since I got my beautiful new Bombshell. Thanks, y’all!!! My best wishes to HLK and all the Rat Bastards you supply with your great axes. Keep up the great work!!!”

“Hey Hardluck Kings, I just wanted to send you a quick note letting you know how much I appreciated all the assistance I got from you and your staff when I recently ordered my Bombshell Bass.  It is amazing and I couldn’t  be happier. I have played many different basses over a wide price range, but, over the last 20 years of playing, none compared to the out-of-the-box feel I got from my Hardluck Kings Bombshell.  I played it at 2 rehearsals and immediately it has become my go-to bass.  At our resent 10-year anniversary show, it was the talk of the gig.  The guys appreciated it ... the ladies adored it.  I am a Rat Bastard to the core.  I sold a Tele to purchase a HLK Southern Belle today.  I can't wait to get that Full Moon in my hands and I am holding my breath for the new line.  
I'm saving my pennies so I'm ready."

"I gotta tell you guys that the Bombshell bass I bought from you is insanely great I cant believe that something so reasonably priced is so good
Thank you so much  I've been playing bass for 57 years   I have F****** and yours is just as good maybe in some ways better.
         Forever grateful you exist."
