I've seen two or three of these for sale recently, but I've never found out much about them. Can someone fill me in?

Yeah, you don't see those up for sale too often. I believe they were designed with Jeff Berlin. I don't know much about them either except that they seem pretty basic. Jazz style pickups? I'm going off memory. Anyone out there own one?

I admit to knowing not much about these either. Heck, I have a hard time spelling the name.

It's a take on Jeff's modified Jazz, but better done.
Super fast, slim neck with thick ebony fretboard.
Very high output passive pickups. Humbuckers (I believe). I have had people argue with me the bass must be active, as the output was so high.
Alas, they are passive.
Mine seems to work best with light strings ~40-95s
The bottom is not overpowering, but a little bass boost on the amp makes the sound work.
Neck pickup is near the neck (duh) but little space to slap.
P/U spacing is wider than Jazz bass.

Thanks for the info, it sounds like something I'd like if it ever became available.
