    I've seen them on ebay. Guessing that's where you saw them too. These are more like "upright bass guitars" than real EUB's.

    If you want to play something that's going to feel like a double bass...this isn't it.

    :help:Thanks - I have a beautiful 100 year old German Upright and a Yamaha EUB as well as a collection of electric basses so I am just looking for something unique to "fool" around with without being made a fool of by getting complete junk! Anyone else know anything about these "Pro Basses" by Tennessee or about Tropical Moon Music dealers?
    I don't want to be completely ripped off. Thanks all.

    I asked them about the wieght on a 3 neck bass/guitar 1 week ago and they have yet answered. So I guessed right its a back breaker.

    Anywho browsing through thier pro basses for the average to advance player ( 15 string joke bass) I believe the are a novelty brand.

    I cant take most of their stuff serious

    I have not seen their EUB but judging by thier other stuff I would not trust tennessee brand instruments.

    I've seen their stuf, too. I just don't know who needs to play bass, mandolin, banjo, and guitar without switching instruments.

    I read a review of one of thier ERB bass guitars and it was rank. The neck wasn't straight and the intonation was off and not adjustable (not a big deal with fretless instruments I know). The overall impression I get is that their instruments would be better suited to the parent to give to their kids who they don't want to become musicians.

    I have seen the Electric Upright Basses guitars at ebay. I have no much experience in guitars selection. I felt very comfort in palying the guitar. The neck was not too straight, where I felt more comfort. I am very much impressed.
