Not sure where to put this thread; Toby Chennell builds DBs that look very nice, but the instrument that intrigues me is his arco bass guitar. It's fully acoustic, can be played in your lap like a guitar, or upright on an endpin, and it can be bowed. It has a longish bass guitar scale, if I remember correctly. I'm kind of attracted to the idea. It's prettier to look at, IMHO, than any of the EUBs I've seen, and has a definite "what the f***!?" appeal. Anybody out there have some playing time on this bass? I might consider replacing my EUB (which isn't all that portable by the time I get it into the flight case) with one of these.
