Recently, people have been becoming aware of some alternative approaches to bassmaking. Notably the removable and adjustable neck of James Hamm's basses and apparently Bob Ross is making basses with detachable necks and c-bouts. While I have not actually seen any of these basses I do have a pre-judgement[mostly negatory] about these approaches. But I am open to learning more. When I originally saw a single non-detailed pic of a Ross bass with a detachable c-bout I thought it ludicrous. Now, having seen his site i see that he appears to be doing work of note. Mostly I am concerned with the long run. What future problems may these instruments face regarding structure? Advantages/disadvantages?
