    I'll contribute by adding a pic of the new-fangled bass.
    Man, single cutaways are getting popular!

    I have a Rob Allen Mouse fretless.
    The bass has a big monster tone, which is amazing coming out of something so small (about the size of a strat guitar). The bass is also amazingly light.
    I use it in a latin setting. Great Bass!

    With a Mouse being featured in this month's VG, bump.

    Very attractive. I wonder if I'd get more use out of one of these than my current fretless? I prefer a URBish tone, not mwah.

    I bet it would be A fun solo-monster as a Tenor bass (A-D-G-C) or above (D-G-C-F)...

    you think that Rob is going to do (or has done) a full size SC?
  8. I am sure I have read something about a full-sized RA single-cut. I can't find where though.

  9. Anyone here buy the one at Bass N.W.? (The one in the jpg I think...) Would you mind telling me what they go for used? Thanks.

    The Deep 5 Custom - I'm as far from a single-cut fan as you can get, and I'm in love with this bass. Piezos plus a top transducer equal tone for days. :D

    At $4950, I'm sure it'll be unrequited love. :bawl:
