I just picked one of these up in trade, mainly because I was kinda bored and it played really well, I am also kinda amazed at how good it sounds. What I can't figure out however is the details of this wierd pickup that it has. This model isn't like the Billy Sheehan bass (no scalloping, rosewood board, and no P pickup). I've been messing around with it, but am just looking for someone who might have more detail on the bass. The one that I got looks identical to this one: Which I have to humbly thank "Symbad Bassist" for allowing me to steal from his site. So does anyone know anything about these basses? I know they're made in Taiwan and were probably pretty cheap... but I am just looking for details, particularly what is going on under that big black pickup cover. Thanks!
