I guarantee the electronics aren't 100% stainless steel.

Neck 1.5" dia. = 0.75" radius. Not much scope for bends...

My first concern would be the weight, but 4.5kg isn't much more than average for Fender-style basses. What's more of an issue is the 'cold' feel of the metal on your fretting hand. I don't doubt it stays in tune and it certainly looks striking, but I don't know how comfortable the metal neck would be to play. Plus the fretboard radius does look a bit tight.

don't care for the body but the rest is cool. I guess they could bolt on whatever you wanted, or you could

I love it, well out of my price range for basses but I'd really like to try one.

Looks like something you could put together after a trip to the hardware store.
