    There is a cheap copy that a guy is claiming to be a Ken Lawrence on E-Bay. THe url is:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3775521975

    Bid at your own risk - the bass is crude, bridge and tailpiece are wrong, looks like it is not hollow, no body contours, the neck is wrong (bolt-on!!!), and the wrong shape headstock. Looks like a kid decided he wanted a Ken Lawrence, couldn't afford one, and copied the body shape.

    meh. It's probably worth the current bid, or a little more.

    for 137, I'll buy it just for the basslines pickups. Use the rest of it for replacement parts.
