Here's a TB thread about it: https://www.talkbass.com/threads/nvbbd- ... 0.1066116/
And a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1WQyby1jhqQ

Very cool looking, and sounding bass! Watched the video - a lot of usable sounds... wouldn't mind having one! Carmen, show us yours - can't believe you wouldn't have one of these in your collection! :D

Yes I have Paulo.... ;) the pic you posted is actually a picture I took of my bass a few years ago. Here's a few more:

Good info. in the TB thread and video you posted!
Additional trivia: Back in the day (1974) Michael Lutz of Brownsville Station was an endorser. I'm guessing it was plenty loud cranked thru that Sunn Coliseum stack:

Weren't they related to Shergold?
And I'm also quite sure their instrument designs must have inspired the guys at WAL when they started building basses. There's so much similarity between this Hayman, Shergold and, say, a WAL Pro or a Mark I.

The Hayman build did indeed become Shergold. Famous quirk was the body wood. It's obechi, which is not under any political protection at present so we may be seeing it in a lot more guitars in future. They were very affordable compared to the big US brands in the UK at a time when the alternatives were cheap & mostly nasty plywood bodied Japanese copies.

My guitarist, circa 1985, used a 40/40 guitar. I've always wanted the bass version, which come up fairly often.
That's Spider One to the left of me. I'm playing a righty Ibanez destroyer bass.

Rarest might be the 5050 bass. I don't even know if there was any left handed....
