    The pic you posted is my SC5!:)
    It has lots of extras, like a full Buckeye
    top, wood pickup covers, Flamed Maple f/b
    and Abalone block inlays. It was pretty
    expensive. I ordered mine from Brian Barrett
    at the Lowend (he will show up shortly;))

    Its a great bass. Its loaded with J S Tech
    pickups and the Benavente 3 band preamp.
    It can go from a modern to a vintage type
    tone (just what I was looking for). The
    slim neck may not be for everyone but I
    got used to it pretty quick.

    Overall...its great playing, sounding
    and in my opinion its pretty cool looking bass.:D
    Probably the best thing about this bass is how light it is and how it balances on a strap. I can play this bass for hours without any should
    pain.

    It was a rather expensive purchase. Brian or
    one of the other dealers can get you a price.
    You can check out the web site too.
