Garncarz Fanned Fret 7-String Headless Bass Guitar

Here's a new DIY Fanned-Fret, headless, 7-string bass: Garncarz Fanned Fret Bass Guitar

Here's an image:

The Ultimate Question: What string gauge is needed for 18.84# of tension when tuned to E2 on a 27" scale guitar?

That's ... different .....

I don't think I like the looks of it, hahaha.

"# 24 fanned-fret, zero radius bloodwood fingerboard
# 36 inch scale"

That on the other hand I like.

I don't like it that much at all, and it does have a headstock, it's just on the other side of the bass.

For a first build that's brilliant! Even made his own pickups.

A headless tuning system instead of the headstock at the bridge would be much more aesthetically pleasing to me, but I admire his creativity nonetheless. And he even dared to use fanned-frets

It's like a mystery, wrapped inside an enigma, wrapped inside an ugly ....in' guitar.

Actually, it's pretty innovative. Plus, a fanned headless always looks worthy.
