Washburn Bantam doubleneck bass must surely be one of the better designs of doublenecks, a species of guitar and/or bass frequently known to be cumbersome and unwieldy. Note also that the player gets a good choice of strap buttons to use!
If my memory serves me correctly this model was played back in the day by German session bassist Frank Itt.
The pictured example (thought to be one of only six imported into the UK) is currently being offered for sale on BassGear.co.uk priced at £750.
Thanks to Marky for bringing this instrument to my attention.
