    Gibson discontinued them a year or two ago. I had one for a brief time, bought it for $700, but most people try to sell them for around their original price of $1700, trying to catch the foolish buyer who was unaware of the price drop. It was a great bass, my biggest complaint is it was so neck heavy.

    I play a Zon Sonus 5/2. If you have any other questions, PM me.:p

    I'm gonna move this to "Basses". It's a question about a bass, right?
