    I don't think I'm alone in finding some singlecuts "asethetically challenged". I believe I am guilty of using the term "Mutant Earlobe" to describe them, for which I'd like to apologize retroactively. I stumbled on this Stradi singlecut, and I find myself Born Again Singlecut, at least for this one. It looks rigid as heck, but has incredible upper fret access, or in the case of fretless, upper board access. Want.

    A slightly different take on the same concept, but nearly as gorgeous:

    And for the more traditionally minded form factor, I just haven't seen anything more beautiful than this:

    Don't get me wrong, I've got some very nice basses. Way way above my skill level. But Marleaux makes me :drool:.

    I'm highly opinionated and extremely self-assured
    I’d hit that.


    And that.


    And that!

  10. I usually love singlecuts but I find those guitar-ified viola type designs impossibly ugly. Not to my taste at all.

    They do have a way with aesthetics at Stradi.

    These probably wouldn’t be that great for a lefty playing them upside down.

    LOL, I like that.
    It's about how I feel about all I've seen, including in this thread, ever.
    Same as my dislike of Fenders and their cookie cutter clones, I'll leave it there.

    I enjoy their IG posts. Some interesting designs. Several of them give me GAS bubbles.

    I agree with you -- that bass is aesthetically perfect.
