Very curious Epic (I guess). Looks like a Warwick Fortress.

That's one cool looking axe. Interesting pickup placement.

Wow, I think I must have been on vacation when that bass was done. I have no recollection of it whatsoever! The angle of the picture is exaggerating things, but it's still very unusual and I'll venture to say one-of-a-kind.
top: Burl Walnut
accent: Maple pinstripe
shape: Custom ("Fortress Horns, Europa Butt"
neck: 3-piece Maple
scale: 34" long
inlays: Pearloid (plastic) ovals
side markers: bronze
peghead: Cone with veneers like neck through, no volute
pickups: MXY, treble pickup 3.5" away from fingerboard
electronics: "Epic" volume, pan, bass, treble, mono
finish: satin natural polyurethane (oil-look)
hardware: polished brass
originally made for: Larry Morgan Music, TX
birthday: August 20, 1996
Other production note: String with .040-.060-.080-.100
The bass visited here in 2000 (again, I must have been on vacation because I STILL don't remember seeing it). The fingerboard was levelled and refretted. We were going to change something about the electronics, but the customer changed his mind when he sent it in.
Enzo, did you buy this bass?
