    Nice looking axe. Never played one myself, but if it's up to Rob's usual standards, it'll be a ripper. I'm a big Status fan; mines a Series 2000 headless.

    I'm beginning to think I'm the only guy on the planet that actually owns one.

  6. I owned one for three months...

    Fantastical bass the neck was supurb and the pickups as hot as any,, and it was a very warm sounding bass but had all the attack and pressance as a S2 or King..

    Reason I sold

    Got bitten by the GB Bug..!!!

    Mine was black with carbon fiber scratch plate like the one on the website.!!!

    so no, ur not alone but rob doesnt make many of these.

    That is a great looking bass. I bet it sounds great too. The body looks like the trace Elliot T bass, but the T bass did not have the graphite neck.

    So that's 3, possibly 4 on the entire planet. Mine, the red one I demoed at the factory and yours, which may or may not be the same one on the website. Sure are nice basses.
