I've always had a thing for headless, less smacking into things, they stay in tune forever, smaller cases etc... But there aren't too many choices in headless 5 string basses without getting into custom prices. So I nabbed a Hohner copy that looks like this one. It met most of my needs but I couldn't deal with the lack of a body so I trimmed the little stump of a body it had and squared it up right at the edge of the bridge route and glued on some new wings. Photobombed by one of my tele's.
