  1. Ive never heard of Mirow basses before but i found this one up on the aussie ebay. i am captivated by the picture of the bass. i think that the body shape is suuuuuuper sexy and quite original. shame bout the headstock though

    I took a look at the eBay auction, seems like an alright deal, if it stayed low and if I had any money, I'd bid for it - Though I'm not a fan of glue-in necks.

    You're right about the headstock...it reminds me of Elmer Fudd.

    The headstock reminds me of a Carl Thompson, but not as artsy.

    Looks like a Carl Thompson, a Pedulla, and a Ritter had a love child.

    If you look at the back of most basses there are screws at the top where the neck fits inside the body, or a metal plate. On a glue-in neck joint, the neck is made to fit inside the body and glued in. This is good in some ways, like better sustain as the neck is connected to the body from the sides of the neck too, but bad in others, for example you can't replace the neck easily, it can warp in extreme temperature changes etc. Gibson use glue-in neck joints, but most other companies use bolt on necks.
