Stanley had at least 3 of them. They (Ibanez) came to a show and measured his brown bass, then the Ibanez basses showed up at his house one day. Late '70s I think, and they're pictured in the foldout of one of his live album from '80 or so, along with his Alembics.

Wonder if he ever recorded with them?

Stanley is also well known for his Carl Thompson Basses - as much as for his Brown Bass. Stanley had quite a habit of appearing in ads for many manufacturers. I guess it's easy to get used to all that endorsement money and free gear.
