    Any other RA owners out there? This will be my second one. I really dug the 1st one but sold it in a moment of weakness.

    That's a beauty! Gotta love that grain.

    Who made it? I searched RA bass and got over six million hits. I didn't find any bass companies in the first few pages though..

    I saw that auction, that aguilar pre should be interesting. Maybe send an email to Rob and ask what he thought of the preamp in the bass. I know I love the fishman matrix in mine, and I couldn't imagine wanting more booty or output.

    That looks like a cork top. Beautiful, nonetheless.

    That's a stunning RA! What exactly is the OBP-1?
     
  10. Its a 2 band EQ from Aggy. (Boost only, I think?) I believe my last Spector had one, very hot pre.

    That is an awesome looking top on that RA. It is a fretless, no? Hard to tell from the pics.

    Very cool bass. The maple top has a face; like a smiling teddy bear.
