You mean the bass has fanned frets, in other words it is multiscale??

I suppose there are lots of basses like that man

Fan-fret guitars aren't "perfectly intonated." For that you probably have to go to true tempermant frets (squiggly): http://www.truetemperament.com/ You can actually have BOTH fanned frets (multi-scale) and true-temperment, FWIW.



"Fanned Frets" is actually a trademark of Novax guitars. Novax had a patent on multi-scale guitars for a while, but it really wasn't valid (since multi-scale/fan fret instruments have been around since the 16th century and another guy held a patent on them in the early 1900's). It's since run out anyway (patents generally run out within 20 years).

And then there's this setup, which you don't really want to know about...

Doesn't look like it would change much as long as your fingering was accurate. Would make bends interesting though...

^ Does that kind of setup have a name? Never seen anything like that. Looks interesting.

Even looking at that for long enough would give me a conniption

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
