    barroso - having looked at their website it appears to be a BEX4C semi hollow body bass. Why Billy isn't getting to hold his signature series bass in the pic I can't say. His signature series basses still seem to be the usual design - P-bass like.
     
  3. But, I've read that Billy's new signature bass is based on the BEX, so to answer barosso's question I'd say: "yes, yes it is".
    Don't know what happened to his old signature Attitude bass, or that line in general. Is it discontinued perhaps?

    I don't think it's discontinued. I just think they have added a second bass under the Billy Sheehan banner.

    Well I've just been to

    www.billysheehan.com

    It's a prototype bass that he is working on with Yamaha, so I guess it's his new signature series. I think the attitude basses will still continue. His comments suggest that the bass will be available for mere mortals like us soon!
