    You'll have a hard time finding may people (at least in the US) that have played these as I believe there are fewer than 3 or 4 that have ever made it here from Ireland.

    A friend of mine owns the one that's on eBay right now:

    The construction on this bass is amazing if not overkill. The neck heel is about 2 inches thick.


    Nice bass overall but a rather "dark" tone to it as you might imagine you'd get out of a mahogany core body. The neck is no skinny mini either...it's a beefy bass for sure and built like a brick S#*& House.
