Maxtone double neck basses, fretted 5 and fretless 4

I'm intrigued by these. Made in China, but for @ $600 investment, I wonder if they are worth it?

From the bat inlays and the headstock design, it looks to be the same as the Galveston basses. I've played several of the Galvestons at the NAMM show and they have all been nearly unplayable. Huge, clunky necks, cheap tuners, frets hanging over the side of the fretboard - and this is at NAMM, where you want to show off your best work.

Great price, and it looks cool though!

Too bad. The Les Paul/Precision double neck guitar/bass looks pretty cool.
