    I'd like to be the first in this topic to show my miltiscale 6 string, but i don't own one yet. I dream of buying one,
    but i'd like to see what's out there, being played.

    Yeah. That caught my eye too.

    I'm hoping to see one so I can tell what it is.

    He meant that the individual strings have different scale lengths. The result is a fanned fret bass.

    Surely he is referring to basses such as Dingwalls which have fanned frets and a longer scale for the lower strings than the higher ones?

    EDIT: El murdoque beat me to it!
