    It's the spacing between the D and G strings. I can forgive the poor finishes, hokey control plate covers, etc., that's part of their ... charm. However, call me old fashioned, but I like the spacing between all strings to be equal. Oh and I also prefer the strings not to be slipping off the end of the fingerboard. Sheesh - bass building 101. The body shape isn't too bad, but that's because it's not his design - Ritter I believe.
     
  3. Yep, yep, yep, the string spacing is odd...........again :D

    well, the current bid of $10 seems to be in line.

    If the strings were any higher off the neck, you'd have to call the Federal Aviation Administration to warn them.
