So there was I browsing the WWW and suddenly I stumble myself upon this guy's instagram full of tiny basses.
Turns out they where all handmade and further on I've contacted him asking how could I get a miniature made out of one of my basses, the reply was "send me some pictures of your bass" that was it!
I then asked him if he would ship it overseas (he's in Brazil) and he said "absolutely"!
He charged me $100 BR Reals (about $30 buck as of today) per miniature plus shipping, the shipping was also fairly cheap.
So as he was making them he sent me some photos, those are the pics that I've previously posted.
It took close to 2 months but they're here! :) The wait was well worth it! They look fantastic!
Also he was very happy and proud that his work was going this far away, so I decided to post a thread about his work here and maybe someone here could be interested in ordering something from him.
I used XOOM (same service as PayPal that allows you to send money overseas) and if needed I could assist anyone on how to do it using his info.
Also try to contact him, if he cannot manage to communicate I can help!
Here's his FB page, his name is Washington:

I think this is really cool. I'm going to have to put it on my TODO list for sure.
