    It sort of looks like a Lakland, without the Rounded bridge. Where did you find out about those basses? Their site looks pretty nice aswell, i imagine the 6-er version of that bass is beeeeeeeutiful awell :D

    That picture (and the others on the site) look weird... Almost like they're 3D models or something.

    I think they are... and if you look at the website, under "basses", 3D models is all there is. How can one think you can sell a bass without real examples of actual woodworking?

    The "Instrumental Music" store in Thousand Oaks, CA has several of these in stock. I played a couple of them. I am a novice so please take that into account, but I wasn't all that impressed. They look great, but the Low Bs seemed floppy and most of the models had a finished neck. I don't like the sticky feeling of painted and finished necks so that was a big turn off to me. They do have one of the nicest looking head stocks I have seen, for what it's worth. I don't have the link but I think Instrumental Music does have a web site. Good luck.

    I'd say it's definitely a computer model. Kind of strange they wouldn't show the actual wood finish.
    The head stock is pretty convincing but the body gives it away. wood finish, knobs, strings at bridge, lighting at the rounded body edges. Like to see a photo of the real deal.

    Actually, these instruments remind me of the Schecter diamond series, and the control configuration screams DeArmond Pilot. Maybe they're made by the same people?

    Keith Brawley is an ex-VP of Fender. He was in charge of the Squier line I believe while he was there.

    you discovered the real reason i posted this pic. i liked the idea to see if i was the only one to have the feeling that this is a 3D model or not.
    i am not alone!
