Looking more like a spaceship than a musical instrument, the Stash is a stainless steel bass, created by Stan Potyrala, which you will only need to tune once.

The design is not only distinct, sleek and modern, but the unique tubular neck presents the fingers of the musician to a parallel array of strings around a circular radius. This is a more natural and comfortable way for the musician to reach the strings. This design can ease the muscle stress that a flat surface can cause to the fingers, hands and wrist.

Every part of the bass is made of the same metal, resulting in it having one coefficient of thermal expansion. This means your bass will stay in tune much longer than conventional basses. It also means even extreme temperature variations won't harm the bass. The design improves stiffness, mechanical and environmental stability, sound quality, tuning and mechanical accuracy.
