    Striking-looking instrument. What's the scale length? Nut width?

    Wowza, amazing inlays, especially contrasting with the wood color and body/head shoe

    Danke. Beastly-looking instrument with a distinctive aesthetic. I've heard of the maker but am not familiar with his work. Reminds me a bit of a Sei bass I played once and a bit of the pics I've seen of Surine basses (never played one of those), but it has its own thing going on, too.

    I dig the deep treble cutaway (hate having frets that are difficult to reach). Good luck with the sale.

    Are there fret dots on the top side of the fret board?

    John Dimaggio described it as a Celtic Martian.
