    I have a Sonic Blue one.
    Sorry but not letting it go.
    Very hard to find these now, never understood why they stopped producing a high selling item.

    Don't know if it matters, but I think (correct me if I'm wrong) the Matt Freeman and CV70's are pretty much identical spec aside from having maple fingerboard (b&b for the 70's). Nut width, radius and fret size are identical, IIRC. They're a bit more readily available than the hens teeth that are the 60's CV. Wish I grabbed one way back when.

    Here's a spankin' new one, up in the great white north.

    I've been wanting one of these, too, after getting my hands on the '70s version, which has been stellar...

    I stupidly sold mine. I didn't even really want to sell. Let it go for song, too. Dumb.

    Different pickups and neck profile .
    Neck is thicker. Pickup is hotter.

    Old ad. I've called on that one several times.

    Really? I remember the neck profiles feeling pretty similar. Has anyone ever taken a reading from each of the CV pickups and shared? I always thought the Freeman pup sounded fantastic.

    Balls. I was tempted to pull the trigger if the OP didn't...

    I'm on my 5th one. I've bought 1 from GC used online , 1 from MusicGoRound, 1 from Sweetwater as soon as it came off of backorder, and 2 used from this site posting a want to buy ad.

    These are hands down my favorite Pbasses.
    I just purchased my last one here a couple of months ago.

    Also check reverb and Craigslist daily. Every time I need one I search all the above mentioned on a daily basis. Inisisally find one in a week or two. I hope you find one soon.

    Oh it does sound great, it's just more aggressive than the thumpy 60's Pickup. I think it's modeled after a Seymour Duncan or 70's style pickup.

    Also the Eva Gardner P is just like the Matt Freeman but with a Rosewood fingerboard /Jazz neck. Same pickup as the Matt Freeman and CV70's P.
