    Uhm....Seems like they had a bad piece of wood which they decided to salvage by cutting it like this?!?!?! :confused:

    Don't try to play sitting down!?! :D I think there are some elements to it which are interesting, but it really does look like someone got excited with the table saw ;)
     
  3. Oh, my. :eek:
     
  4. It is oddly appealing to me... kinda makes me wonder about the reserve.

    It's not bad as compared to some eBay monstrosities.

    I always thought a good design could be done, kind of polygon-ish.


    But that's not it.

    Funny how the owner mentions being neck-heavy, but he never bothered to move the lower strap button, which would have helped solve the problem.

    Looking at the body and headstock shapes, I'd call it the Origami Bass.

    That sure is a strange bridge saddle configuration (the intonation positions).

    If it were cheap enough, maybe it could be bought and then recarved...

    Is it just me or does the body shape look like a bad attempt at the map of Texas?????

    Coolest thing is those bass clef inlays - now that is a really nice idea!
