How about this one;-)

 

Correct me if I'm wrong, Robert, but if I remember correctly, that's not a G-bass, but a "contrabass", i.e., an octave lower than a standard "bass", going down to the C below a G-bass.

 

But also with a very limited range... an octave, or slightly more?

 

My guess is that it was custom-made for a stage act.  And strictly for the sake of appearance, since it's much larger than necessary for what it is musically.

 

More for fun than for music, I'd say, though maybe one could fit a mast and sail to it.  8^D

sorry mate, not for sale at any price

 

Likewise with mine, neither my G-bass nor my "ordinary" bass.  And if either was for sale, there are already queues at least a dozen long for each... and have been for decades.

 

Good luck to you, though.
