A bad day of playing bass is still better than a good day of playing cello.

You just can't believe everything you see and hear now can you?

What neck-dive?  ??? If you have neckdive with an Explorer, you must be the Hunchback of Notre Dame ...

It ain't hanging right ...



My guess is that the owner wanted the lower registers of the neck closer to his body - short (arm) people got no reason to ...  ;)

Besides, this is another cruelty ito blame Fender for - remember those early 60ies Fender basses that had a third pin behind the headstock?

Wow, that IS rare! I haven't seen a Krappy in.... OK, I've never seen one, and hope I never see another.

There's a price you have to pay when you make the body too small

Maybe the strap button was placed there to keep the truss rod from moving. Or maybe there isn't a truss rod. We'll need to contact the Krappy factory to get the real story.

Those were apparently supposed to be concentric knobs and the "luthier" missed. :o
