Not really my cup of tea, but certainly weird.

Take the carving away and it's just a standard bitsa P-bass.

And why are these carved instruments always finished with a gloopy application of reddish varnish?

That string spacing though - you’d have to get a cab between the A and D strings.

Maybe not everybody's cuppa but you've got to admire the handiwork.

It's very nicely crafted but basically a £200 bitsa P with a three grand carved dragon.

I'd be concerned about the practical effect of removing big chunks of wood between neck & bridge, looks likely to flex & deform under string tension. Looks too delicate for anything more strenuous than hanging on the wall, anyway.

His other bass looks a little bit more practical, still very silly but a bit less like the back of a seat in a Chinese restaurant:

Name written on with a Sharpie... It's not, is it???... Crikey, no; it's someone else!

Now I reckon that body's come from Aliexpress or similar, as its workmanship is widely divergent from the headstock.
