We've named it the "Platypus" because it's so unusual in appearance, yet, one can see Ned's imagination at work, as he re-thinks all of the most critical factors in modern electric bass design. There are so many interesting features.
Although Ned immediately saw the benefits of moving the tuners from the headstock and placing them onto the body, he simply used "off the shelf" bass tuners. We also see the beginnings of the swiveling strap-holder, attached at the center of gravity for easy balance. The headpiece area seems quite crude today, but this was just the beginning of his design evolution.
