looks like great... its for people with problems playing instruments (bone problems, etc...)

 

Well, I'd assume it's also a proactive solution for those who don't want to develop carpal tunnel, tendonitis, etc.

Thats cool...too bad it s neck through design....isnt very many neck throughs out there that are made so well that you dont have intonation problems....also usually a pain in the A## to adjust them...just my thought

 

 

I don't get it?

 

Why would having a neck-through have any more problems with intonation than a set neck or bolt?

How does the string curve with the neck:confused: Wouldn't the action be very high on one end and low at the other end?

 

Looks to me like the neck is curved in a way to allow a flat plane along each string. Otherwise you'd be right; the action would be all {censored}ed up.

At first I thought you just had a little too much fun with photoshop. But I checked it out anyway.

 

 

I want one right now. My grandpa had horrible carpel tunnel. My mom has it bad. I already have it pretty bad. I think that $4000 to prolong the life of your fingers/wrists/elbows is a small price to pay.

My dad sent me the link and I had the same inclination about Photoshop. It does look pretty freaky. :D

 

I've had carpal tunnel for over 10 years now and while I've found ways to minimize symptoms, a bass like that (if it really did help) would be priceless, IMHO.

What do you do to minimize the symptoms? I try to wear an elbow brace, but it's horribly uncomfortable, and I'm not sure if it's helping at all. My left hand goes numb for about 2 hours every day.

When I first had problems with carpal tunnel, I sought help from a physical therapist. She advised the following: about three or four nights a week, I sleep with wrist braces. Warm/Cold water treatment works well too (placing my hands/wrists in a tub of warm water for about 1-3 minutes, then placing them in a tub of cold water for 1-3 minutes). The braces seem to help the most, keeping my wrists in the same position all night long. I've tried other exercises that help, but the braces are far and above any other remedy I've tried. I did, however, have to through three or four different types/brands of braces before I found some that were halfway comfortable. I guess I just got used to sleeping with them after awhile.

I'll try the wrist brace thing. I'm just worried that a brace will just support the weak tendons instead of helping to build up their strength. I should really look into physical therapy specialist instead of just a normal physician.

I'm not saying the braces will work for everyone, but they certainly helped me! :D

 

Definitely look into a physical therapist. I'll never regret going, even though I fought it tooth and nail. Saved me years of pain and numbness, IMO. :thu:
