    I just bought a brand new Big Al

    I'd never heard of them till I saw one in PMT Bristol and sort of fell in love with it. I found out they were discontinued three years ago, so I thought it was a never-to-be-repeated chance to buy one brand-new. Did I do well? There can't be many brand-new ones left for sale in the known universe.

    If you like it, you definitely did well! They are unique basses, both looks wise, and electronics wise.

    Good score! I've been on the look-out for a fretless 5 string SSS for what seems to be forever, I didn't think there were any Big Al's left in the UK.
