    Let's see what everyone thinks. The better question might be, which of the two basses is miniature or enlarged; the electric bass (enlarged) or double bass (miniaturized)?

    Random, I know.

    Somewhere around 45" by the looks of it.

    ...or that's a 1/8 db.

    But a giant electric bass is a lot funnier! :p

    Now that you mention it, that looks like a viola da gamba, instead of an upright bass.

    What scale? It's obviously mixolydian. :rolleyes:

    It's a trompe l'oeil, the double bass is simply further away from the viewer. Both the electric and upright are standard-sized.

    34” scale – duh! :bassist:

    The real question: what kind of strings does it have? Flatwounds of course! But what brand?

    It is also the best bass for metal. It's so good that no one can buy it. Ever. :D:bassist:

    I'd estimate around 50".
     
  12. What's the best Viola de Gamba for... oh, nevermind.

    That second pic, the b&w one, is actually the one I was trying to find when I ran across the pic of the giant flying V. :)

    On my monitor the electric looks to be about 3/4" with the URB about 9/16"! :smug:

    It's a mini Strat with a couple missing tuners and a violin. They are stunt doubles for basses. How else do you think they got 'em small enough to put onto a web page logo?
