Yeah, built in July 2001.
He stated its a custom, but ex-factors in general dont have much differences even if they are custom made. Mostly wood options. (atleast from what I've understood)

I should have two basses coming from overseas next week
Pics then

Yeah, the headstock is god ugly, but being that Ran is a custom company, you could easily get it built without that. I plan on getting a Ran built once I save up about 3 grand.

How long do you reckon that will take you? and what style/what are you going to have on/with it? I hear the waiting time is horrendous... can't see myself waiting that long for a guitar... but will eventually have to, probably.

Probably take me about a year and a half considering I work for minimum wage and have to still buy new shocks for my car. Oh well, I think it would be worth the wait. I mean, if it's the exact guitar of your dreams, I don't think a year's wait would be all that bad.

And the waiting list still isn't as bad as Jacksons. I know a guy that waited 17 months to get a custom Soloist.

It's relatively affordable, so I imagine I'll soon be cutting some corners to make that bitch mine!

2,000 for his most stripped down 4 string. 8,000+ depending on what you get.

I sent the electronics today back to Phil for a full maintenance, I got to play for a sweet 30mins before they stopped working for some reason.

Once I'll scrape down enough for my next bass, I'll probably head for something along the lines of:



I must get either one of these some day aswell:



an original Steinberger will easily set me back 2000€ and that Status Streamline... 3000€.. some day.. I will
