    Doesn't sound too bad either, tho. I'd rock it. Would be interesting.

    Thats pretty cool, not something I would use everyday but I can think of some songs that it would sound cool on.

    Haven't seen this before, but the neck looks awfully thin. Aluminum isn't THAT strong, is it? I have a feeling the string tension is pulling it into a bow rather quickly.

    I noticed that too but if it didn't have a truss-rod it couldn't handle the strings already as I observed it.He did a pretty good job there I believe he didn't miss the rod too.:)

    Look at the bass when he turns it around... I don't think there's a truss rod sticking out the back like i would expect there to be. There also isn't enough space in the neck to install one.

    If it isn't made of some kind of an alloy but only alli. then you must be right,it has turned into a bow as we speak.:p
