    You must have bought this off Stever Barr.
    I was the original owner of this bass, and a SWEET bass it is, I just didn't really play 4 stringers anymore, nor did I play fretless as my main anymore, so I went and traded this off and got myself a Lakland instead.

    The bass is AMAZING!

    I bought it back in '01 I BELIEVE not 100% sure on this around that time though.
