    That's a common BC Rich pickup configuration, but judging from the body style, it's not a BC Rich bass. Do you know what date the photo was taken?

    That's one of those aluminum neck things... what are they called? I'm drawing a blank here.

    I think it's a Kramer. A very old Kramer!

    1984, that's when the band put out their album.

    As to how long the bassist (Dominic Steiner) owned the bass...I dunno. Just trying to find the bass.

    eBay is always a start, as are local music shops and on-line forums (hint hint) but I need to know (or at least it would help to know) a name or model number attached to it.

    Googling doesn't offer much.

    www.vintagekramer.com talks about it, it's an XL9 (series), Google yields exactly one hit for it, and one forum post about it.....gonna be a real bear finding one, but at least I know what it is now...

    thanks much for the hints and tips.
