    That looks amazing, despite the lined fingerboard ;) . Zebrawood tops always seem to look good on fretless basses.

    I don't think I've played that particular bass but I have played one just like it. They sound UNBELIEVABLE! If you want a giant, woody sound not unlike an upright than this is the bass for you.

    It's a bass he built years and years ago (I think BB says '97). It's a demo bass, so it sat around in his shop and got played quite a bit. It has a few minor dings. But considering that if he was still building basses, this bass would be about almost $3000 newly constructed.
