Alright, this isn't a bass, but it has to do with musical instruments, so why not? A friend of mine plays the cello. Currently she is still renting one (since this her first year, she's doing pretty well I must admit), but she'll probably buy that cello next year. Now, I was at her house today, and I like to pluck the cello occasionally...you know, without a bow, just like you do most of the time on a DB. Works quite good, although the fifts require some thinking Anyway, I noticed that the fretboard (dunno if its called that way, since it has no frets ) was not centered with the strings. I'm trying to say that the distance between the neck (fretboard) on the left, ie between the edge of the neck and the C string was smaller then on the opposite site, between the A string and the neck. This looked extremely strange to me. I'd never buy a bass with that kind of neck. Now, is this for a purpose or something, or just wrong construction? If so, I don't believe the neck was standing like that in the beginning, so what can trigger that? Hope my point came across, maybe this is something for the DB guys out there?
