Man, those things are wild. Too many strings for me! I have short fingers that would never be able to get past sting 4, so I'll just stick with a 4 string.

The frets are "fanned". Its necessary because of the enormouse range in string gauge of the instrument. You may have noticed that bass necks have a much longer scale than guitar necks and that the space between frets is much wider this is because of the signifigantly larger gauge of bass strings. By fanning the frets each string on the instrument can play with proper intonation at the appropriate string tension.

Yeah, that was pretty interesting. I didn't even know they made an instrument like that.
