    I've been looking into these basses for several years, but was never able to find one. I
    know Pat Badger from Extreme and Chris Squire used this model, but I wondered if
    anyone has any experience with them.
    I found this one listed on Gbase.com, but wouldn't spend that type of money without
    getting some feedback first...

    I spoke with Jon Mouradian (Jim's son) and was told that:
    "Body wings and center section are eastern rock maple, The neck is reinforced
    with a liguid aluminum epoxy which is very stable,requires little adjustment
    which is why most people are not aware that the rod is adjustable"

    Any comments?
     
  2. I've never had the opportunity to play a Mouradian bass, but I came very close to buying the one that i've attached a picture of. It was at Marrs Music, which is ultimately why I decided not to buy it.
    I love the look of the bass. If I remember correctly, they are a short to medium scale bass. I've seen Chris Squire use his green Mouradian live on "Owner of a Lonely Heart" a few times.
    By the way, Marrs wanted $2,000.00 firm
    Cheers,
