    John Bolin is (sadly) no longer producing these so you might have to do a little digging to find one. They are definitely worth the effort though. :)

    Jim Frost at Black Canyon Guitar (a former US dealer) told me that Josh Bolin is primarily a custom builder and that the custom stuff was more profitable. Bolin wasn't able to make them economically enough to match their target market and apparently it was either raise the price or stop making them. I suspect that it was another situation like Reverend's where they were making awesome stuff but weren't able to break into the market very well so they had to give it up to streamline things.

    Black Canyon Guitar is selling off their stock of Bolin NS basses (and one guitar) on Ebay US right now, by the way.

    I don't have any idea how you'd even contact him. Using the email supplied on the site got me zero results, which is how I ended up contacting Black Canyon.

    But if you do get ahold of him, I imagine that the phrase "every man has his price" applies here. :) I love the idea of a fanned Bolin NS fretted.

    If you want one of the standard Bolin NS models, Music Inn in Nottingham had one last time I was in there (about 2 months ago).
