    Yeah, talk about playing in the box...

    I like the Pentagone, and the various Victoria versions are pretty cool too.

    So what's 400,000 Yen these days? Last I remember it was around 112 or so to the dollar, so we're talking roughly 3500 bucks (plus shipping and etc)?

    I used to have a canary yellow fretless Stealth.
    Very lightweight but not very loud.
    Should have changed out the pickups.
    The neck was thin and fast but a little too round for my taste.

    I had one in the shop not to long ago. Not a bad bass at all. Different to say the lease, but had a great sound and comfortable feel. The bodies are very small, almost curbow-ish but a very smooth playing instrument.

    Has anyone something informative to say about the sound in those funny adjustable pickups? The round one-pickup-per-string type that can be turned 90 degrees? What sort of difference is there in the sound (attack, sustain, etc) when in either position?

    Curious.

    Seems like the man who builds these(H.Nayashi) has some very cool forward thinking idea when it comes to instruments. I hope his idea and technologies finds it way into more basses because it certainly intrigues me. Just wish he had some better looking basses, although the Victoria bass isn't too bad looking. Well he does sell his parts, I would very interesting seeing someone use his parts in a more standard bass. Just look at this pickup, i'm very curious to hear what something like that sounds like.
