    I bought one of these when they were first released.

    Amazing bass. It was commented on a few times by sound engineers that there was a slight chorus effect through the pickups which gave it a rich sound. The neck was so comfortable to use and looked great with the dark wood and fancy inlays.

    I sold it after my last chance of stardom died out ;) I really regret it now :meh:

    As regards them being the prototypes of the soundgear, I can see it as a possibility. However, I really liked the fact that it had an Ibanez headstock, unlike the soundgear
     
  5. Nice work on bumping a 7 year old thread.

    Well, I stand by what I said - it's a great bass. I just wish I could get one now!

    I feel like I'm stuck in a time warp now - is Billy Sheehan still the best thing since sliced bread? ;)
