    Whatever it is, it's got twenty-two frets and a zero fret. Probably the definitive bass for brown notes.

    OK...clicking on the link was worth it: (bold added)

    "Hello, up for your consideration is this really nice *MINTY* LEAD RELAX BASSPAN BASS circa 1970. I Bought it recently from the original owner who told me he was in a famous rock group from the late 1970's until early 1991, and he used this bass exclusively for his nightly bass solos. He claims his band had a hit record that made it to number 2 in the billboard charts.
    Bass is in great shape butt there's a few cracks.
    Still has the Original flat wound strings which provide the lowest bottom end I've ever heard coming from any hollowbody. You will definitely feel urges when you strum this bass.
    I tune it to Drop B and the sustain is unbeliveable.
    Buy with confidence, this is some once in a lifetime s**t here, not some crappy CL deal. I feel its my duty to sell this bass to you!"

    ...total joke...dumb, but I admire their moxie

  17. I love how you used the tort for texture. :laugh:
    That's why I posted it, thought it was funny/humorous. I should have included the quote in the OP, would have clarified.

    The cigar box guitar crowd makes instruments out of just about anything you can think of including bedpans and shovels. That bass wouldn’t even raise an eyebrow with them.

    I seem to recall seeing something similar over on Cigar Box Nation.

    Bedpan guitars are a niche thing though :D
