    This shortscale bass had been posted up for sale here in Korea for a while(it apparently just got sold yesterday for about $500), and I thought some of you would be intrigued by its design. The seller said it was one-off custom job, built in Japan by "Thomas" (as seen on the headstock), and as you can see there are a number of parts that look quite unique to the design. Regretfully the product description was nothing more than a very lengthy discussion his claim to how rare it was, how nice the wood was, and why he chose the gauge of strings it came with, but at least he posted some decent shots.

    At any rate, a few clicks of the mouse below and you'll see what an interesting piece it is, especially with that odd bridge.
