Wandre Rockbasso is a perfect example of a guitar that is both sculptural and minimalistic.
It's a short-scale bass with a single pickup at the neck and a single volume control behind the tailpiece at the base of the instrument. This particular Wandre model allows you to see how the backbone of Wandre's steel neck passes straight through the body of the instrument all the way down to the tail-end. I'm guessing that in this instance it is also carrying the wiring from the pickup.
This bass is currently being offered for sale by Palm Guitars in The Netherlands via Vintage & Rare, price available on application.
If you thought you'd seen something similar previously on Guitarz, we looked at the 6-string guitar version, the Wandre Rock 6, back in May 2008.
