    If you just so happened to defy biology and physics and gave birth to a bass that just so happened to be slightly special and malformed what would that bass be ?

    I would hope it to be a headless shortscale, the less surface area the better.

    More likely the OP's been mixing Guiness with Jameson and some Irish "green"...


    To answer the OP's Q...

    It would be painful for me (I play DB) and would need a caesarean. Hopefully it would be a "cornerless" bass with cat-eye ff-holes, carrot-coloured (blonde or brunette is okay too), an Art-Deco scroll, maybe a 5-string, and a mensur no longer than 42".

    Now back to my single malt...

    Dude, there is something wrong with that bass. I would say that that's more than a little malformed... :ninja:
