You don’t often find may Lace Helix bass guitars around, they are very seldom on eBay. There are currently (today as of this writing) only 2 listed on Reverb. This particular guitar is part of the Lace Red Label Series by Don Lace. Everything from the speed knobs (very different from traditional volume knobs), to the Alumitone custom bass pickups is very different than your traditional bass guitar (which does not have a preamp so no more 9-volts). They smooth, slender, and very ergonomic body makes it very easy to play. These also have maple necks and mahogany bodies.

This Helix bass comes with the same intriguing body design as the rest of the Helix line, and incorporates DAT-system style control knobs and a Lace Alumitone 90 soapbar bass pickup into a quality mahogany body. This 34″ scale 4-stringer has a “C”-shape, 6-bolt, rock maple neck with roseboard fretboard decorated with an “H” inlay on the 12th fret. It also has a heavy-duty chrome bridge and sealed chrome tuners. It comes with a Red Label Design gig bag.

The fact that you can find these on reverb today for under $400 is unbelievable.
