What can that neck be made of??...
Now that's a "5-string and then some" bass!
There has to be a video somewhere, off I go!
Not quite the same, but close.

That's a "Pratt" built by Oscar Pratt here in Canton, Ohio. He does some incredible work...
Obviously not a roots and 5ths guy.......
This appears to be a foul prank
So what is it, 8 strings with double octaves on each string?
lmao! Countng them up, thats 23? I think that adds up to a 6 string bass with 2 octave strings per course save the lowest, which just got 2? I tried a 12 string once and that was hard enough, I'm not sure what I'd even do with that....
Oh yes, 323, I think youre right that does look like 8
Just because we can doesn't mean we should...
One could slice a lot of cheese with that sucker.
Is that 8x3 = 24 Wowza! I bet it has a moddest amount of neckdive with that headstock!
But a total work of art it is.
That's just silly.
Maybe he is but he just has a different string for each root and fifth! Lol
And I thought 8 and 12-string basses served no function. This may take the cake along with that ridiculous chapman stick.
Have you ever heard Tony Levin play a stick? I have, and it wasn't the slightest bit ridiculous.
After reading the thread title I was hoping for some four string pr0n, for a change. Bummer...
naw man it's cool
ridiculous, would hate to string that thing
I'd be more than willing to take it on a test drive, would not buy it though.
Yes I have. Music for nobody but bored music magazine readers. It's wankery. Why hasn't it caught on with other cats? Cuz it sucks. It belongs to the smooth jazz circuit of sterility and poor album sales. Tony used to rock. Now he is like an info-mercial for a stick no one wants.
