I saw this on ebay. Could somebody tell me if the statement about the basketball is true? "Seven strings! You better be able to palm a basketball before you play this truly gorgeous instrument. Ash body with burning magenta Maple top. Bartolini active electronics. 24 frets. Locking jack. Feel every note you play in your bones. This bass is ungodly. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more pictures (larger and better detail) and questions."
