    Usually I'd start off by saying excuse my ignorance, but I think it's a legitimate question...

    I've seen people playing and seen models of basses without anything above the neck, no tuning pegs or anything.

    How exactly do you tune/string these basses? I'd suppose you could get some sort of key and stick it on the end to tune but I've got no idea and it doesn't seem to make any sense. Although I have no wishes of buying one soon, I'm still curious.

    Thanks.
