    Nick Fyffe uses this bass and I was wondering if anyone had any links or knows of a place that might sell them.
    Thanks.

    I been everywhere, man...
    None. At all.
    That looks like the latest version of the Nathan East signature bass from Yamaha:

    If my eyes don't deceive and you can excuse my nit-picking ways, the bass he's playing in the photo doesn't have the JJ setup that the Nathan model comes with as stock.

    I've seen that bass as pictured with the P/J setup in European guitar and bass magazines. IIRC, it may not even be called a NE signature at all. It doesn't look like they plan to release it in the USA - it may just be for the EU market.

    You're right, it is a PJ. (a bit hard to see on the picture) It is not the signature model, but it is very much based on it.
    you can probably go to the yamaha site and compare the two.
