    That's the only reason I haven't seriously considered the ASAT - I'm addicted to 5!

    Not my bass. I believe it's somewhere in Germany. I don't think there are more than 2 or 3 of these in existence. To the best of my knowledge, these are not being made nor are there any plans to produce any more.

    I would be willing to bet that it plays just like an L-2500.
