I can't find much information about this bass. It was listed on Ebay as a Burny ILB-105. We know Burny is a name used by Fernandes. I ordered it last Saturday. After prodding the seller Ms_Tokyo about shipping information on the following Tuesday, I got the message, "sorry for late, will ship it today". So it just showed up (Saturday), all the way from Japan, and the good news is, it kinda is very very good. 8.3lbs and the one pickup that is working sounds great. It needs to be cleaned up, the electronics sorted, frets seen to, etc, but it plays great. The neck graphic says Illumina. Perfect for Metal? I'd say. I might even gig it tonight (always fun to shock fellow band members). Next to it is a Strat project I just started. Wow paulinia is a light wood (Empress if it's a G&L). So ugly it's pretty? A true work of art? Stick it in a closet and forget about it? Starkly iconoclastic?
