Yeah, a bit of an expensive novelty at that. Maybe one for die-hard Queen fans who've got money to burn...let's be honest, a Korean-built, mahogany-bodied, set-neck bass with a neck mudbucker and a short(er) scale is an Epi EB-0 by any other name!
Admittedly, it does get a very flattering review later on: http://www.brianmayguitars.co.uk/newsitems/view/89
so maybe it gets around some of the problems people usually cite with the EB-0. (Probably the same reasons I've always preferred the EB-0's long-scale sister, myself) It just seems you could get a very similar bass for a fraction of the price.
That said, if they did make a long-scale version...I quite like the look of it, despite not being a massive fan of Queen.
