    If you want to prove that bigger is better, just get a penis extention. An 11 string bass is probably not worth it!

    :D I kid! I kid!

    (That was PG-13, I hope. I can say 'penis', right mods?)

    If you don't have the hands of an NBA basketball player the only thing you could use that fretboard for is a cutting board, but it's still cool.

    hmmm... I am sure I am closed minded for thinking that is a bit silly...

    ...although part of me likes it.

    looks like the bottom few strings are meant to be drones? ;)
  10. wow, i bet i could play chromatic fantasy on that with only open strings!

    j/k, but wow, what is that tuned to?
  11. im guessing its lowest is a low F# so following the circle of fourths it would be something like

    f# b e a d g c f Bb Eb Ab

    Cool. Looks much nicer than the 11-string prototype he had previously made. Not something I'd ever need, but I'm sure it's someone else's dream come true.
