    3D printing is really gonna open up the world of weird instruments in time. And I'll be in the stands for allait.

    Much as I like the idea of having the rock solid axe on stage, there's something to be said for a strange piece like that being a real show element. If it actually sounds decent enough to tolerate, then that'll be a plus.

    I agree. I'm not one that goes for the unusual, I'm pretty much traditional, but that bass is something I'd like to own... IF IT DIDN'T COST $3000.00!!!

    When they get one to do brass so I can make my own bridge pieces, I'll be sitting up and paying attention. Until then, it looks like hobbyist "maker" mini-mills is the way to go.

    I posted a pic of this one in the "Weird" basses thread awhile back.
    Thought it looked like it was made of plastic.

    Now those guys and the "Bee basses" guys ought to get hooked up. ;)

    There used to be a burger joint in downtown Somerville, NJ...Mr. Bee's...and the tabletops were honeycombs, some with bees in them, under glass.

    gotta love the 3D printer age.... that said, while I appreciate the uniqueness of this instrument, I'm not ready for one.
