So, I was looking at some pictures of your bass, and I was like, "Wow, that looks quite similar to my Rob Allen. Different for sure, but... HEY!! Ohmygosh, that looks like the same piece of wood!" So, check the evidence: I'm curious, what's the serial number on yours? Mine's #599, and I got it this past June. Oh yeah, and if you can send me some higher-resolution pictures of yours, that would be great.
