    Canada, Eh!
    And when did they discontinue it?
    My interest is piqued (again) after seeing this nifty thing (I have no affiliation with the seller...)

    Excluding the late '60s Coronado and recent FSR reissues, I believe Antigua basses were produced in 1978 only. Serial numbers can be S7, S8 or S9.

    Way, way, way overpriced IMO.

    Had a Tele bass just like that, without the added pu.

    I believe that the Antigua also has a reissue somewhere around 2010-2012. I would have gotten one, but I wanted my Urge II more. WARNING: Antigua finish is like Uncle Buck's hat - they anger people.
