Custom 77 China Girl Bass - Gibson EB0 Copy. Lets get this manufactured again!
The purpose of this post is to educate the community about this bass - who are fans of the Gibson EB0 for a good price and willing to try something else than an Epiphone:
They've JUST (2 days ago) discontinued this guitar due to having no demand - I think most of the problem is due because nobody knows these basses exist!
I've inquired about it and Custom 77 said that now that they've discontinued it - there is lots of demand.
So if you're interested you can give them an email - sort of like a petition ;)
Looks like a very well made copy and the price, 447.00$ CDN would
make it a better deal than the Epiphone. It is a short scale like the EB-3 or Gibson SG. Have to import it from France though , no way to try it first hand.
This looks like a thinly disguised ad.
Read the forum rules.
Obviously something fishy here.
Looks cheaply made.
Let's see how this thread pans out...
Gotta be the worst choice for a headstock I've ever seen. Nice looking copies till you get to that headstock.
As for the bass, meh. Looks like any other EB-3 to me, and for the price I'd pay just trying to import one, I could probably get 2 Epi's.
Hey here I am again.
Wasn't trolling but more educating cause in my humble opinion it's a more decent EB-0 copy (A headstock is a headstock) for the price range similar to Epiphone. Anyway I've settled down with a P-bass jajajajaja
I actually kinda like the headstock :) at least its something new... Looks cool but by the time i payed to import it I could probably just buy a gibson SG bass :(
If they start making it again and trying to sell it in the US, I hope Gibson slaps them hard with a company-destroying lawsuit. And I'm not a Gibson fan or backer of tradition typically. Are you sure that isn't the real reason they stopped making them?
TB isn't the best place to gather petition signatures for a copy of a marginally-enjoyed bass. There's a handful of Gibson fans, and fewer EB0 fans here; not enough to gather for an off-brand copy.
And yes, your original post is very troll-like.
I don't see this as a troll thread at all. It was informative and made me aware of a brand I never heard of. Personally, that's much of my goal in spending time on TalkBass. It's like a NAMM show on my IPhone!
Carry on... Lets see 1000 more "J vs. P" threads to bore us to distraction!
