one-off vintage hand-made violin bass guitar actually is, although I'd wager that it was post-Beatles seeing as it was McCartney that popularised the violin-shaped bass. The ingenuity that's gone into making this bass is something else. The neck appears to be from an old 6-string folk guitar - it still sports six tuners on the headstock - although the greater scale length required from a bass has necessitated a body extention to the back of the neck. Obviously the nut was replaced, plus a whole new fretboard for the bass scale, frets in the right places, etc.
