  2. I'm afraid that the recent BB3000:s are only availble on the Japanese market, unless they're dubbed "Michael Anthony" and a bit redesigned (much uglier IMO) compared to the classic version in your link.
    But, you could find one used if you're lucky. Check ebay.de and co.uk, I see them there every now and then.

    I once had a bass just like the one linked to above BTW, except it was bolt on, had a rosewood fingerboard, was called BB1600, and made in Taiwan (IIRC). It was my first good bass, and I miss it.
    If only I could find just like it...
     
  3. Older ones show up on ebay occasionally. Mint condition ones are pricey (plus you would have the additional shipping). BTW, there's a nice BB1600 there now.

    hi, i had a Japanese BB3000S natural wood in the mid 80, after 20 year i found a RED BB3000 made in Taiwan S.N. NJ04054,
    it is different from my BB3000S if i remember well , my Japanese BB3000S sound was deeper, wormar and cleaner like a higher end bass,
    can any body confirm that the japanese BB sirius was made batter then the taiwanese ones, or just the BB3000S are batter then the BB3000 models ?
