    that bass is really cool, MM, P and J pups, and the rout going to the lower horn is a kill switch. might have to buy that.

    Waitaminute, I think I remember that color and the pickup config, isn't there some cheap-ish Jazz copy with a pickup configuration and a yellow-green finish like that? I forgot what the brand was, though, someone even posted about it a while ago.

    Cool, looks like MooseLumps found it!

  13. If it were cheaper, I'd buy it and put on a custom see-through plexi guard. Would look schweet!

    that would be 'Jamaican Greenburst.' I don't blame the guy, he had enough electronics to outfit 3 whole basses with that stuff! Normally you would buy a cheap bass and then upgrade it with new stuff, not this model... I would love to try it though.

    - Whether you are a beginner or top class player and your taste is for the traditional
    or for something modern, you will find that the RFB offers much more than any
    instruments in their class.
    The Flextool has been designed with the player who requires just about every choice of classic bass pickup design with the 3 primary designs fitted as standard. This guitar as it's name suggests is a great flexible gigging tool. The specification is as follows:

    Neck: Bolt on
    Tuners: open gear
    Neck: Canadian hard maple
    Fingerboard: rosewood
    Body: alder
    Pickups: Spear
    Finished in Jamaican Greenburst.

    Lots of routs, but at least they look like they were done well. I was expecting to see a total hack-job.

    there's something about the arrangement of
    those routs that just says

    "crop circles"

    it'd take a couple of paychecks worth of pickups
    just to fill all the cavities in that monstrosity.

    That bass is like a fat chick. You'd probably like to give it a try, but don't want to be seen with. LOL!!!!!
