    They are Japanese handmade weird looking, sounding bass...if anyone is using one of these
    could you give me a simple description on its playability?

    I have heard of Atlansia. They make some strange stuff. Never had the pleasure of playing one.

    Only heard of them and seen the website.

    I don't really care to pursue them, since, the concepts behind some of their models don't make a lot of sense to me :confused:

    A while back I emailed them asking for info, and a few months later got a package of many flyers, one on each model, plus a catalog. I think they are strange looking, but I like some of them. There are also some unique "inventions" in the basses, and I'm glad that this guy is not afraid to try new ideas, both stylisically and technically.
