Could be the Fender Prophecy Bass, which fits the description you gave: http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=...0-14&sp=-1&sk=
Also, Fender made a prototype years ago called the Staccato Bass, which was very similar to the Status Basses. It had the bridge at the headstock end and tuning keys like a Steinberger at the bottom end. The only pic I've seen of it is in KlausBlasquiz's book "The Fender Bass" on page. It has a sort of clover-leaf design on the headstock end.
