    it had one pickup that you could move up and down to change the tone.
    it had two metal rods on the sides to move the pup
    it was like a stein but with this wierd pup mover thinger.

    it had great slap sound. i could play this thing on my shoulder to i feel asleep!

    That is the Westone Rail bass. Its name comes from (and this is just a wild guess) from one of two reasons...

    1) Peter Westone Jr. was a bass builder. Peter senior was a Railroad worker. He hated the fact that Jr. didn't follow in his footsteps, but as tribute to his father, he named the bass "The rail"


    2) It's got rails for a body.

    Does anyone know which is true?
  6. I suspect it's because you can move the pickups on rails...
