There is a Randy Coven thread going in the "Recordings" folder, but I thought I would call this to your attention here. At Coven's web site he has photos of his many unique and custom made basses, plus a description of their "history." If you would like to check out his basses, go to the site linked here and click on "Toys." http://www.randycovensite.com Just an extra comment. His latest recording features a song played with his three octave fretless bass.
