  1. Anyone know what this is? I'm considering purchasing it, but the seller has very little info on it. Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks.

    Looks like a Lightwave pickup system.

    Definitely a Lightwave system, but really can't tell anything about the bass.
     
  4. Lightwave. Is that good?

    I wouldn't say its good or bad, but it sure is expensive.

    The headstock looks Tune-ish.

    Hard to say. Some really like them, some hate them. HERE is the result of a search for "lightwave". Lots of threads to wade through, though. All things considered, I think it's going to depend on what brand the bass is, the asking price, and if you think the lightwave system is right for you.

    It's a B model .. it's same that Rana Ross endorsed for a long time (I saw ADs on Bass Player,7 or 8 years ago .. ) ...

    I don't think it was an expensive model, the other B basses are not ... but this model it's not in production anymore ..
    These are the only things I know about this bass ... Hope that can help you ...
     
  11. Thanks to all you for yor help. I got all the info I need, and everything seems to check out.

    Keep us updated. I'd be interested in what you think about the Lightwave system if you pick it up.
     
  13. I'm going to go ahead and try to buy it. It may need some work, but it might be worth it.

    Here's a link to the Hohner website's BBass page. They have some links to sound clips, but they don't work for me.
