There was one for sale here a few months ago. I know that 'cause I was the one doing the selling. It went abroad I'm afraid.

I remember lusting after one of those in the early/mid 90's. I think Mike Inez played one in the video for 'Mama I'm coming Home' (Ozzy)...

Your memory is playing tricks Mick. I didn't change anything on the bass other than the setup. I got it playing pretty well with a nice low action – the combination of neck-tilt and truss rod adjustment rather fried my brain though. It went to a guy in France. Can't remember his name now but I Googled him at the time and he seemed reasonably well known on the French Jazz scene. He seemed very happy with the bass. It was a lovely, characterful instrument dripping with mojo, but not a patch on more contemporary versions of the semi-solid concept.
