    Is that a real bass? Or a mockup?

    For some reason the links are being stripped from the club post. I'll look into it.

    Randy, I am far removed from the original owner, but George has confirmed that this was a customer specified order nearly 27 years ago (and it truly does thunder!)

    Crikey, I didn't even notice the pups! I was just admiring the finish on the beautiful woodgrain and contemplating the unusual 4-string nature of the beast. No matter how many 4-str Fbasses I see, in my mind's eye the name conjures a 5-str and I wonder should I ever be able to afford (as in play well enough to justify purchasing), would I get a 4 or 5?

    I did notice, also, that it looked "Broken In", in a good way. A great way, in fact. It looks old, but is still in "mint" condition. The headstock gives it that vibe. Twenty-seven years, and it's got the exact pup config I'd like: humbucker-P-J...

    Please edjumacate me on the bridge; Kahler?


    I love to lurk here, bring on the pics!

    Ha! What good eyes you have, Feral Feline! That is indeed a Kahler vibrato or tremelo bridge... Somewhat of a rare sight on a bass guitar!

    Well, I know I don't have to prove myself to my many friends on this thread, but here is a closeup of the date stamp underneath the j-pup... 10-09-87 October-09-1987 :smug: Technically 26.5 years old this month... so almost 27 years! [​IMG]

    Not sure - I took the pic right off their website. It looks so amazing it almost looks fake but I assume it's real.

    Oh, and sub'd for envy, GAS, and the hope that I'll join your fine ranks soon!

    My response was actually highlighting the fact that tremolos on a bass were NOT a rarity 27 years ago, but cool pic none the less.

    Apologies for my misunderstanding Zortation :oops:
    Time to leave my historical digression on this thread, and return to more current stories and especially pictures of the amazing craftsmanship and limitless customer choices of (IMHO) the very best electric bass guitar built today!
