Only notable thing about this one seems to be the grungiest looking bridge I've ever seen.

I'm expecting that we'll continue to see Thunders listed every day this week, until on Friday we'll get a new listing saying "Westone Thunder Guitar/Bass *RARE* *RARE* *RARE*".

I thought the Thunder basses always had barrel saddles?

Most of them do - later ones (Late 85/ early 86 on) had the magna cast bridge as used on the Spectrum basses.

That's the sustainer bridge -top left on this page http://www.westone.info/cats/83/p15.html
This bridge was used from 82 to 85, the first (81) models had barrel saddles like the basses, later ones had steel bridges and saddles
