    Hi everyone! Remember me?

    What do you think of this bass? Do you see any value in it? What kind do you suppose it is, or who might have made it?

    It looks homemade, and I don't see much value there.

    Perhaps a first or second try from a young Luthier KUNGfuSHERIFF? I think that if I made my own Bass it wouldn't look so good..LoL!

    Those tuning Pegs look real odd. I wonder how it sounds.

    They're cello pegs.

    Cello Pegs? Would they be strong enough to handle the tension of Bass strings, especialy heavy strings?

    This looks like a church bass. Can you supply some dimensions? there are a lot of folks that love these for very intimate styles of play.
