Just kinda looking for a history lesson here. I suppose Rickenbacker was around then too. But in old videos, and I mean really old videos, it's either something like an upright or it's a Fender. Any reason why Gibson got a cold shoulder? I know they caught on a bit in the sixties. Jack Bruce used one tons, but most of my favorite players from back then were pretty much Fender (John Whetton, Hugh Hopper who has gone strictly Peavey now). General pop bass history posts would be welcomed here.
