    Oh man! These are SO RARE. I had one briefly. They are great sounding and playing basses.

    For sure. It takes a special kind of player to rock one of these.

  9. Out of curiosity, are there other effect cartridges available for these basses?

    Chris originally used what must have been a prototype for this bass. His had shorter horns, was white, had an extra fret, brass pickguard, Grover Titan tuners, and a BadAss bridge. In later years, Chris started playing one of the regular issues. I'm guessing something happened to his original.
