I went to Washington Music to talk witha manager about pricing a custom build for SI based on the 6 string custom SII from the 1995 era catalog. What is that body style called?

This one from the 89 catalogue?
I guess you can call it the JOS signature :-) Click here

That is it. I remember seeing a flamed Maple bass with the same shape for sale some years ago but I cannot remember the name of the body style

I believe that is the Rogue body style setup to accomadate the six string Series configuration.

Well, the Rogue II shape is a variation on the standard Rogue shape to accomodate Series electronics, like on Gnawthnar.
But indeed the How our body shapes evolved page suggests that the regular Rogue shape derives from that particular Series bass:
To make a Rogue, merge an Essence into the Europa, and then stretch the horn to match the length of the 6-string custom Series II in the 1990 brochure. Everyone loved that shape, but it was really quite enormous. The Rogue captures the feeling of that bass, but is a much more manageable size.
