I'll admit that since I started building instruments a while back its pretty darn hard to get my GAS going. BUT... every once in a while something so strange/awesome/rare comes up I can't help but crap myself over an instrument I undoubtedly can't afford. The Ken Parker bass linked below is one of those instruments. To me it looks like a Pagelli and old Carl Thompson had an offspring that was immediately shipped off to war. http://www.thelowend.net/gallery/viewtopic.php?t=912 I like this one more than anything I've seen in quite a while.
