    I found this "Gibson piccolo upright" on the web.
    http://www.rainerglas.de/for_sale.html
    For those of you who don´t speak German, it´s allegedly a 1983 Gibson-made 85cm scale upright with a Barcus Berry pickup/bridge unit. I´m not sure if the Ron Carter reference is to the fact that RC plays a piccolo bass or that this is the kind of bass RC plays...

    Anyone out there able to shed some light on this bass?
