    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 :eek:

    It's like a mystery, wrapped inside an enigma, wrapped inside an ugly fuckin' guitar. :lol:

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