    Lookie what I found! I work at a church and as I was digging around in a closet full of cords and microphones I found this beast. The choir director says that someone donated it to the church a few years back and told me to find out how much it's worth so that we can sell it and get some new monitors for our youth choir.

    I can't find much info on this particular bass and I was wondering if anyone could fill in some gaps.

    Apparently, but it doesn't shoot missiles or anything. :)

    I remember someone here having one and he prefered it to his real deal, 1980's Steinberger. Listening to the sound clips he recorded of it, it sounded a fair bit more aggressive too! So definitely a cool bass, but definitely one worth keeping hold of!

    It is fast and fun to play, and it does sound really good, but not really my style.

    There's one on eBay sitting at $200 with 1 day left.

    Fairly recently I bought a similar Westone Quantum for $175. I'm sure if you listed it here you'd have several offers.

    Yeah mine's in better condition than that. I might have to think about becoming a supporting member so I can list it.

    Thanks for helping me track some info down.

    Yeah, yours does look pretty good. My Westone is in better condition than the one on ebay, too.

    See how much that one ends up selling for when it ends tomorrow and go from there. I'm guessing maybe up around $300 or so.

    You asked too low, should have sold it for 300-400$ easy!

    These are very nice stick basses.
    Next to the Stein's, they do not get better, well, the Warwick is pretty good if you can fine one and then they cost as much as steiny.

    I have one of these, nice bass.
