Bassix bizarre one-off foldable headless upright bass
I think the photos say it all here! I've never seen anything quite like this allegedly unique Bassix foldable headless upright bass before. It's actually quite a clever way of making an upright bass portable, however, looking at the bridge position I can't believe that is the usual 42" scale length you'd expect on an upright. It looks more like a bass guitar's 34". Which begs the question, why not just use a fretless bass which would be even more portable than this?

Currently listed on eBay UK with a £0.99 starting bid.

  1. And those are definitely 34" scale strings. I've never understood the purpose of EUB's with bass guitar scale lengths. It would seem to me to defeat the purpose of buying an EUB in the first place. But hey, it probably looks cool on stage.

  2. With that weird center block from the neck through the body that folds on its side the whole thing looks like the upright bass version of one of those Casio guitars from the 1980s.

    Definitely stupid!
