Bassix upright travel bass IS its own case!

Please excuse me showing another double bass, but I couldn resist showing this bass (with what looks like a sawn-off body) just for the sheer inventiveness factor. The neck, strings, bridge and tailpiece are detachable whilst the body has a hinged lid and serves as carry case for all the other components. The inside of the body / carry case even has a pink fluffy lining so as to protect the neck, etc, whilst in transit. Apparently it's a UK-made bass from a company called Bassix, although this example currently listed on eBay UK with a starting bid of £200 is being sold as a project because it is in need of a little attention.

  1. I spotted this Gibson Alex Gregory 7 string guitar on ebay. Most bizarre headstock I have ever seen! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VERY-RARE-ONE-ONLY-1992-GIBSON-CUSTOM-SHOP-MAESTRO-ALEX-GREGORY-7-STRING-GUITAR-/350908846882?pt=UK_Musical_Instruments_Guitars_CV&hash=item51b3cc1322

  2. Nice coffin for a bass!
