Has anyone heard of Bill Lawrence Basses??

  1. Hey all, I posted a question on this before and no one seems to know. I'll just try once more. I bought a Bill Lawrence bass in the mid or maybe late 80's. Maple/rosewood neck, tobacco sunburst, PB pups, BL's signature stamped on the neck boltplate w/ the serial #. I know nothing about it or the manufacturer (except he makes very good pickups and likes Strats) Never seen review on the BL line. I emailed the Bill Lawrence folks and they have not responded -yet. I'm just curious as to whether I have a good bass, an obscure but maybe good bass or a some throw-away that I got ripped on (well, not quite that bad I hope!). Anyway, if you have any knowledge of the Bill Lawrence bass (4-string, P-bass), please let me know. Otherwise, I'll just sit here and ask more obscure questions!!
