As the owner and seller of the instrument listed on Ebay... It's a shame to come across the posts above. Bullshit? Off by a decade?
Obviously neither of you knew Doug or ever hung around his shop in those days. I can only assume statements like that come from the bliss of ignorance. If you care to express distaste in such a fashion, feel free. Be by guest and flame on...
But for those who are truly informed and know about this instrument or others that were built in the late 70's, I would love to hear from you. I feel fortunate to have owned it all of these years and it has served me very well. Times have changed as well as my bass guitar needs... that's why it's up for sale.
