Earlier today I posted about the supposedly super-rare LaBaye 2x4 longscale bass, then today I check eBay and - Lo! and behold! There's another one for sale on there! This example, in natural finish, has a Buy It Now price of $2,500 which is $2,000 less than the first example we looked at. In this instance the seller claims that there were only 45 examples made, which although a low quantity is considerably more than the lone two examples that we have previously been led to believe were built. Having said that, the seller of THIS 2x4 bass does not say if those 45 were all long scale (31" apparently) or if that figure includes the more commonly seen short scale basses. However, IF the latter were true, and there were only TWO of these basses made in longscale format, how weird would that be if BOTH of them were listed on eBay within days of one another?
