    Sounds like Brad Johnson's old bass-is your bass this one by chance?

    I saw you play that with Wake Up Call last year. Sounded awesome. Why are you selling?

    Yeah, my bass looks almost identical to that one. although I don't have the dots on the front of the fingerboard.
    I am selling the bass because I ordered another one, the Quest model. I have a Quest 7 string fretless and I figured would be nice to have to identical basses, being that I play upright 90% of the time I don't have a whole lot of time to practice electric, so it would help to have basses with the same dimensions and such. Or maybe I am just going crazy, and should just keep all 3 7 string basses!!! ;)

    That was one of Brad's best deals-he got it for only $1000 used. Good luck!
