    What is the green one Mr. Metal?

    And who'd a thunk a Dark Star would show up here? So far this is a weird ass thread. I like it.

    2 of my Klira...apparently taken before I got my glasses.

    I was curious Fran if you prefer newer or older Hofners and if you see any difference in the quality in the various generations of them ?

    So true but the LeCompte was inspired by a Gibson rather than a Hofner

    Here's my wonderful budget Rogue bass - with a set of LaBella Hofner flats on it, the bass has a classic, full sound. The action is nice, and the finish work is excellent. It has a set of Stew-Mac pearloid tuner knobs replacing the chrome originals.

    I've admired both Major's and Kenny's basses for a long time!

    Major, what pickups are in your Dolan?

    Ahhh... the Beatle, and the Anti-beatle. My Epi Viola and my ZZ Ryder Low Rider. I think it counts as close enough. The Epi was my first bass, and I still like to play it with my jazz band kids at school... My band just recorded 5 demo tracks, and I used my Birdsong for 4, but had to drag out the Epi for one song... will let y'all know when I post the results.

    the ZZ Ryder? I like to think it is what Sir Paul woulda played had he joined Metallica... A cheapo I got in a pawn shop, upgraded the pups and tuners...
     
  16. What's this one MM? Never seen it before. Looks sweet! :cool:

    I got it off of Rob Trujilo after he used it for the recording sessions of Death Magnetic, I joke ! HAHAHAHA :p. Its a 70's MIJ bass that came under several names, Orlando, Aria, Univox , Apollo ETC. Got it off ebay last week , I had several then had the custom Greenburst one built. Needed some serious cheering up last week so I got my first bass love back !

    Scroll headstocks are the coolest! Here's my Firstman bass, it was already well-loved by the time I got it, but it's fun to play... the neck is the size of a wiffleball bat... it's like playing a tennis racket :bassist:
