Up for bids is a Whamola!  Les Claypool plays this occasionally at his show (among other crazy instruments) and it is a crazy sounding instrument for sure.   Click Here to see and hear Les Claypool on the Whamola at Bonnaroo 2006 This is the best audio/video combo I could find to describe it. You can also search for 'whamola' on youtube and find a few videos. You can hear it in some of the newer south park episodes on the opening theme song (written by Les Claypool). Or you can check out the audio on 'The flying frog brigade's' CD 'purple onion'. That will give you an idea of what these sound like. This whamola is set to handle a D or G upright bass string. I has a body made from welding quality metal (like Les's) so it will not be warping or bending unlike some of the wood models you see for sale on occasion. The audio jack and potentiameter are contained in a custom made housing constructed locally at Horn Plastics.  The dial says volume but it is actually tone control. I just didn't have a knob that reads 'tone'.  If this is of concern to you I can replace the knob.   This will work in either a guitar or bass amplifier, but it truely sounds much better through a bass amplifier.  But if that is of concern to you I can replace that.  I've tested this one for functionality but it hasn't seen more than the 10 minutes of use yet.  This auction has absolutely NO RESERVE!.  Shipping will be a  flat rate of $25.00 for people in the 48 continental states.  If you live outside of that are you should
