First post.... And I feel like you guys are going to rip me to shreds for this but here goes... A friend and I were discussing old times (our bass playing peers of the 80's to be precise) and neither of us could remember the name of a bass that one of our buddies played. We've since lost touch with the guy so we can't ask him. I have no pics so I'm hoping that the plethora of bass knowledge found in this forum can help us identify it based on my description. It had a small body (nearly Steinberger small) and had two small blade-looking protrusions near the bottom of the fretboard giving it a loose resemblance of some kind of medieval weapon, which I don't believe was the intention. If I remember correctly, they were all produced with a silver finish and was black under the strings. It looked metallic. It may have been headless but memory fails and I can't be certain. Ads for them were in every issue of Guitar Player in the mid/late 80's but I don't recall ever seeing anybody on MTV playing one. Sheesh.... I guess that's all I got. Can anybody venture a guess based on this description?
