Question Ren Wei Shi

Anybody know much about these basses or what their deal is?

I think that they might be the source of two rather odd, unlabeled 7/8 Chinese basses that I'm trying to identify, based on a couple of photos from the web - but there doesn't seem to be any info floating around... unless perhaps there is another name, distributor, or something else that I should be looking for.

Here's a stock photo of their "model 705" 3/4 bass; I'll get photos of one of the basses here and post them when I can.

Thanks guys...

Here's the 7/8 bass with no label.

Pretty nice instrument; very fine grained top and pretty nice back/sides/ribs - doesn't look like typical Chinese wood. Ribs are very thin, Eb neck, 43.5" string length, big scroll.
