This thing must have an upright scale length or something.
I read that Chris Squire wanted the feel of a 4 string, with the range of a 5 string. So he had one built. It was tuned BEAD, and had an extra foot or something added onto the bass, so he had the range of a 5 string, with the feel of a 4. It also said if you wanted to reach the F, or F#, you had to pull the bass away from your body. Haha
Why does that look photoshopped to me?
What he said.
Would need a larger pic to verify if it's geniune or not, photoshop always leaves traces. It's funny either way though.
I bet its hard finding strings to fit that bad boy. Then again, if you're stupid enough to buy something like that you deserve the long hunt for new strings.
Seeing how the first 10 frets are equally spaced, I'd have to say it's definately photoshopped. "Call Shorty"...right!
Interesting that the guy to contact about this bass is named Shorty.
You beat me to it Budman!
Good call! If you look at it closely, the angle of the headstock doesn't seem quite right, either. Besides, isn't it a bit odd that the lowest frets don't have fret markers and the 12th fret marker is placed at like the 20th fret?
Hell, you can see at the second actual fret where there's a badly done oh-so-obviously Photoshopped join.
A bass Gumby could call his own.......
Wow. That is awful PS work there. Dude, a drummer could do better.
Definitly photoshopped, definitly done poorly, definitly not something I would want to try a truss rod adjustment on (even with my mad photoshop skilz).
I remember a picture of Jason Newstead with a really long scaled bass for some metallica album, but that does look fake.
the intonation would be terrible
That bass has been 'shopped, the first few frets look normal THEN it gets stretched, then the neck wobbles about- and what's with the lower horn? sheesh! Couldn't see that on the board at B3ta!
