    That would probably not be so hard to play-the top is just a five-string fretless and the bottom a doubled four-string. If you think that's something, check out this doubleneck seven-string fretted/seven-string fretless owned by TalkBass moderator John Turner:

    I LOVES it, I WANTS it....must have the pressssus!!! :D I think I'm ordering one tomorrow, but in blue. :D Seriously, that is one KILLER bass. The "Jimmy Page" in me has always secretely wanted a double neck bass (8 string w/octaves on top, std. 4 string on bottom)....now I know who to do to.

    By the way, those two basses in the background look strangely familiar.....:D

    The bass! not the little girl or JT...I'm not some kind of freak...



    :bag: sorry JT!

    Heh, sounds like this Killer Curbow that Greg made a couple of years ago:

    This bass is the reason I have my 8 string fretless. Since he had the 8 string headstock w/ straight string pull designed so nicely, I said to myself, "Hmmmmm.....8 String fretless could be fun...." I've been searching for my intonation ever since. :bassist:

    And BTW me wants one of those, too! :D
    Especially the natural finish maple :drool:
    "If only it were available in 6-string, lefty and that bluish colour that is on the Benavente "custom models and options" page - and some cash to go with it..."
    :wakes up :bawl: and cleans up the pool of drool:
