  5. yea, nothing special but kinda rare. They are a full scale basses, tuned EADGC and had 15 frets. It's purpose was to help studio players sight read because they didnt have to go all the way up the neck to hit those high notes.

    That yellow sunburst (urineburst :rolleyes: :D ), that brown tortoise pickguard and that orange-y maple headstock are one of the worst color combinations I've seen... :spit:

    I would call this anything but cool :rolleyes:
