    I'd bid on it but first I need to know if it's a bass or not. My guess is that it's what ever one plays. If that's the case, I wonder how many how many strings does it have?

    Shaft... is probably one of those Anglo things. Kind of like the "butterfly" on an old car.

    It would be worth it if it came with the OHSC.

    I once played an air guitar with a 48" scale. The way you can change the length of the instrument at will...cool beans!

    I almost bought an air guitar once, but heard a friend play one, and decided I would never been that good to play out on one:D

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    This reminds me of the guy in Australia who was selling farts in a jar on ebay.

    And yes. People bid on them.
