The Dolphin Guitar
What is it with these people who want to build a guitar that looks like some species of animal? This contribution came to us from our Amusing Basses fan Martin (Mr. BassMan). Of course it's from Evil Bay-the one down under in this case. Thanks Martin for this one. BTW, how do you pitch a dolphin guitar-with tunas of course!
The Half Fretless Bass

Once again, this is an Australian eBay contribution from our friend Martin. Now, the bass is listed as a half fretless instrument. Now, what the hell is the reason for doing this? The first and second strings have no frets at all (they were removed) and the third and fourth strings have frets up to the twelfth fret. The remaining frets were also removed. You know, musicians are forever modifying their basses and guitars, but this one.....I dunno gang.
