I was never a fan of the 500/1. I think if Sir Paul didn't use it nobody else would either. I did used to GAS for the larger hollow models (such as the 500/5 aka President bass) but this vid (as impressive as the neck whittling is) seems to have cured me.
Verythin basses are pretty cool, if you can find one. Based on the completely hollow German-made Verithin bass from the 1960s, the "Contemporary" version made in China over the past five years has a block. Not currently in production.
