    Very Gitler-inspired, but I'd say it's not a true Gitler bass. Interesting, nonetheless.

    I have a friend who is a Marine Biologist who has a similar
    instrument that they use to communicate with Whales
    under water.

    Do a search on Hydrophone.
    They make underwater piezo pickups.

    I'd play it in my tub with my toy plastic boats and rubber ducky.

    I wonder--if you get GAS underwater, does it make bubbles?

    Not quite the same as the original posting; maybe more affordable...

    Don't know why I'm stumbling across weird basses tonight.

    "This instrument was purchased by the Museum of Modern Art and will be available for viewing in early 2009"

    bah...what a waste.
  17. Total waste.

    It may be modern design but modern art? Eh...
  18. You gotta love an insturment that needs "Mothers Car Polish" to bring out the tone.
  19. I LOL'd at this... while at work...
  20. *shrug* Maybe this is the future of music? Maybe you guys aren't thinking outside of the box?
