  2. you'll only find one in a store second hand, and only if you're bloody lucky!

    Otherwise, order and wait. Carl isn't reknowned for his speed!

  3. Well, you've never found them for a reason dude. CT basses are Made To Order, and cost in the ballpark of 5 thousand US dollars... So, unless you're his immediate family, good luck getting one! I heard from Les [Claypool] that Carl plans to stop production after this last batch!
