    I've been tempted to bid on a 800 a time or two. I think it was their top of the line rbx at the time. Sure, you scored :)

    Wow this is basically the MB bass redone. Same bridge, similar pickup aesthetic, and it's even the same color as my MB||

    at first i owe one of this, in same colour, in the early 90`s (1991 or 1992), as good as for punkrock.
    but after a work accident with my left hand, crushed left little / middle and ring finger, i can`t play for months.
    to train, retrain my fingers i used two golfbälle, a very cool trick to become smooth feelings and physical motions, oder so, sorry my english is für`n füx.
    i`ve searched for this bass model in german for about 10 years.
    bass inkl. case in very good condition for 480,00€, buyed from a guitar plaver who became it from his brother, the bass was stored unplayed / untouched in his case for many years.
    i will fit it with feltwashers, straplocks and levis no1. , to become the early feel.
    sorry for my bad english and the german and swiss german inputs.
