    Much as I like his double bass, I've never cared much for his guitars.

    The Transtrem always seemed to me like an overengineered mechanical solution to human stupidity. Come on; how difficult is it to transpose something on the bass?

    Well, the Transtrem was originally developed for guitar--the bass version was a later addition. Also, you've gotta remember that when it came out, 5-strings were still not all that common, so you might think of it as an easy way to de-tune to get a low D or C.
