    Yep, right on all counts.

    He's got a deal of some sort with G&L, although I'm not sure if it's actually with G&L or with the Australian distributor.

    He used to use an ASAT bass for ages (the Telecaster shaped model), I haven't seen this bass before.

    please note the EMG pickups. i know that there was a 5 string G&L that was called 5500. i think that this is a 4 string version of that bass.
