They usually stock the standard line up of gear. In the used section I noticed a bass that I had never seen or heard of. I was curious and my first thought was it was a 5 string..since I’m a 4 stringer I didn’t get too excited. I picked it up..super light weight. So far so good.
    Plugged it in...it sounds amazing. Nut is 1.75...super comfortable neck profile for me. I went out to my truck to do some research and could not find any data aside from builder is located in Germany. I will research further tonight.
    I believe it to be a Mahogany body, rosewood board and a maple neck.
    8 Lbs.
    LaFay J Style pickups.
    Controls..Volume/4 Presets/Tone.
    Here’s some pictures..I did purchase it since GC has a great return policy..but I think I’ll be keeping this.
    Anyone have any information on this builder or bass ?
    Thank you.
