    This is a very rare 1990 Lane Poor prototype Minima Electric bass. It has two custom designed pickups by Lane himself, one in the body and one on the surface close to the strings.

    It's a headless design that features a stepped fret fingerboard with scalloped raised frets. The instrument is as-is and could use detail work but the playability and electronics are all working perfectly and it has a tremendous tone! The volume rocker is not connected (It is a corded control) but the pot is all the way up, it needs rethreading. There have been some repairs as shown and the bass has been used.

    It's in great working condition and as pictured. For lack of a case, it ships in a soft bag and will be extremely well packed to ship. I am losing my hearing and can no longer play so I'm selling my inventory.

    Feel free to ask questions. I will do my best to answer all that I can!
    Shipping will be calculated and based on weight and size of the package. PM me for more details.

    Without rounding the scale length is about 33-3/4". The nut width is 1-9/16"

    It really is a fun thing to play. It's pretty easy to get used to the fretboard too!

    I have one like this.
    It’s a dual pickup and very few were made.

    as far as the hard case goes...
    Lane never had one instead he fitted your base into a long gun case :)
