    I had this guitar custom made in 1994, maybe 1995, after seeing and playing one made for Victor Bailey in Rudy's. Mine was made to the exact same specs but simple white, black, chrome. The body is Koa, the pickups are EMG active (can be turned off and made passive). The low string can be adjusted to go drop D. I'd say the condition is very good, maybe excellent. Not mint. It has been played and there are a few scratches, and small nicks. The guitar has been to my luthier, serviced and given a full bill of health. Case is old but fine.

    Also, if buyer is interested, I have a custom white Calton Case made for this bass.

    Rudy's made similar a few years ago for around $3500, but John Suhr no longer works there.

    I didn't paint the body.
    I ordered it white.

    I'm back from touring, BTW.
    Can't seem to edit the original post.
    I'm asking $2500.

    Victor had EMGs in his?

    Mine has EMGs. As far as I'm aware my guitar is identical to the one (his) that I played at Rudy's. Certainly that's what I ordered! The only difference is the finish.

    Free bump for a person whom I think was a close childhood friend.

    I tried to re-open this thread but can't seem to get it out of the 'no longer available category' so I'll re-list it.
