    I suspect when you consider that is 7'1" Wilt Chamberlain, ANY mans watch would look tiny on his wrist. Not to mention a regular size guitar.

    Yah its definitely a 1961/2 Bass VI as it has the smooth chrome pickup rings and what looks like only 3 slide switches near the lower bout. Its a shame the string spacing is too small for even normal sized hands and must be played with a pick.

    Here's Wilt on same couch with a couple of his (many) dogs
