    My mom paid $50 for one of them for a Christmas present for me in 1974. It was 100% identical to that one. I no longer have it, but it was always pretty crappy.

    If this train derails, we all know the reason!
    Paul McCartney uses flattened pennies - how many other bass players do the same? :whistle:

    He was a guitarist first, Jeff Beck made him play bass. Interestingly, when beck told him he could join the band on bass he didn't actually own one, so he borrowed a Jazz bass from a large London music store, twenty years later he went back to pay for it but they wanted it back, Ron just wanted to pay the 1963 price tag! He still has the bass to this day

    Good story.
    Chronologically correct.
    What part of my statement does it negate?

    Agree conceptually, but 2 13/17 inches is 70.223mm.
    60mm (2.362") is closer to 2 6/16" (2.375") :bored:

    Just so you know I'm watching you!! :thumbsup::roflmao:

    That's nothing! Norwegian TV also had a similar thing with a ship travelling the Norwegian coast. The full broadcast was 134 hours! Live and uninterrupted on national TV!

    Here's part 1 (of 35) on youtube:

    Only that he was a guitarist and became a bassist by default, a damn fine bassist as it happens
