I have looked and looked on this fantastic web site for a forum to buy or sell Queen stuff. I fell in love with Queen in 1974 after I heard my brother play a Smile 45RPM record. I flipped. He started bringing home the LP's and every chance I got I stole them and played them in my room. I came across a Brian May Bass and I would like to sell it, but I do not want to go through E-bay for this. This belongs to another Q-Fan!

This person is not joking. I'm assuming (s)he has the above-mentioned model.

that is something i would like to see
A Bass and Guitar are structurally the same. They are different like a Violin and Viola. Both use the same principals for fingering and note usage, but the Bass is specialized for notes while the guitar incorperates notes as well as chord structures. The bass is a completely different instrument. What is funny to me as a professional bass player, is that manufacturers are making Basses that are modeled after their famous Guitar counter parts. What is next, Roger Taylor Piano?
