I kinda like it
Another one from from the ads, aka who needs curves anyway:
woh - that neck-body transition looks really thick! Is this a homemade bass?
That's not weird, that sad!
I think so, the ad wasn't very forthcoming on the details
Definitely angers my gazebo!
Where is that lower horn going?
Looks like it was left in the oven too long.
Or the builder thought he was Picasso.
I can see that it probably cradles the bass on ones knee when seated angling it in a secure 45degree position that would be optimal for playing. Are there more aesthetically pleasing ways that could be achieved? Definitely. (but then it wouldn't be here on the weird looking bass praise thread!)
Another one from the (eBay Germany) want ads: Fernandez Sunshine Love Travelling Bass

Does anyone know about Bossa basses? I'd love one like this in lefty....
I don't know, not coming with a case is sort of a deal breaker...
Is it me or does this look like a flying hot dog:
Wow. Ya better be a really good bassist if you show up with this.
Or a really silly bass-player.
Forgive me as these aren't basses, but dang it they are cool! These are actual and functioning instruments that have been painted as drawings. I would SO play a P bass like this, but I'm funny that way. Thanks for the indulgence.
With this silly bass I was reminded of a casual I played a bit back. The trumpet player, a top guy in town and around the world, chose to show up with a plastic trumpet. Kind of like a concert master who leaves his Guarneri home and brings a carbon fibre violin to the performance. We dare not criticize
When I was in art college, we formed a 'band' and played an entire Friday night show in the campus auditorium playing painted cardboard instruments to canned music, with stage lighting and a good (loud) sound system. When people entered the room from the far end (especially if they already had a drink or smoke) - we looked like a full-on band playing early 70's Rolling Stones, Beatles and Mahavishnu Orchestra to name a few. To start with, I was John McLaughlin, dressed all in white with a 3-neck (cardboard) guitar with (painted) flames on each hs ala "Birds of Flame". For the Rolling Stones segment, there were 'Hells Angles' on cardboard motorcycles 'protecting' the stage. It was fun for about the first few songs, and then we all realized we had hrs to go! By the end of the show the cardboard instruments were falling apart and so were we! Ah youth!
That's a very fun idea making a real P-bass look like that! You've planted a seed GFB!
To be fair, "plastic" (usually a polyethylene variant) horns are a thing. Poly Sousaphones are very popular with marching bands. Poly horns suffer the same "beginner player" and "cheap" stigma as short scales do, but they are not.
