i played one today, and hated it. it looked like the string spacing at the bridge was about 10 mm. there's no way i could play a bassline on that thing. what's the motivation? is it meant for chords? is it really a 'bass' guitar, meaning it should be played exactly like a guitar, just an octave lower? i played for about 2 minutes and put it down without a second thought. does anyone play one of these or know what it could be used for?
