Nathan East 6 string bass?

There are plenty of photos showing him with a 6 string Yamaha with the same controls as his 5 string BB Signature model but it's not listed on the site, or anywhere else for sale. Are these available?

I'm assuming Yamaha made one of these basses just for him. I couldn't find any info on it.

Musician's Friend has them for $2399. I scored a discontinued model from e-Bay (the BBEast model) for $750. Difference between new and discontinued is new is neck-thru instead of bolt-on. BBEast has got a terrific slap tone; have not tried the new model myself but saw Nathan using it on the "Casino Lights 99" video. Love the tone! Both Nathan East models are available on e-Bay if you look long enough.
