    I just came back from a shop where they had a '67 Coronado for about $900. I was quite tempted, especially since it had a vey nice sound. unfortunately, I prefer a 34 or 35" scale.

    Any basses in the market, old or new (like the Lakland Hollowbody) worth looking into? Thanks.

  3. Will, what was the scale on the Coronado? And which shop was it? :D
     
  4. Spector and Dean both make semi-hollow basses in Korea, but the tops are so thick on them that the acoustic chambers are cosmetic.

    Epiphone used to make a long-scale reissue of the EB-2. I'm sure one or two might be floating around out there.

    Between 30 and 32"

    It's at Panhandle guitars on Fell.

    I got my eye on a couple different basses. Swoop in if it suits you.

    Ugly?!?!? I've always kinda liked that look, even with the 'almost' symmetrical cutaways. Much better without the pickguard, that's for sure! To each, their own I guess... You're not far off on the tone!

    Xush and Geshel, thanks for the rig comments! Always appreciated!!
