These are brand new. I ordered them from the makers in January, they erm...arrived yesterday, the makers have had a few problems with production. These are the 2nd set that I've had, the first set (in April), were totally the wrong size, they let me keep them and then sent me these as a replacement. They were ordered for my new Sei bass, but obviously never arrived in time, and the bass is fitted with a set of Bartolinis, and I couldn't be happier with it, so I can't be bothered with the hassle of changing them, and have the bass re-routed. Here's a link to the website http://www.q-tuner.com/bl6.shtml As you can see, they're $320 for a set now, but these can be yours for a bargain $200 plus postage (I live in the UK).
