American Basses by Jim Roberts

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Dr. Cheese, Dec 5, 2004.

  1. How many of you have checked this book out? I got it for myself as a Christmas present. This book is a great source of information. For instance, I have already gotten the history my Peavey USA Millennium straightened out. If you collect basses, or simply want to know more about what you might buy from Ebay or some other internest source, you should give up the $30 dollars or so for this book.

    I got it when it came out last year. It's a pretty nice book and much better than "The Bass Book."

    Lots of pretty pictures, and a decent amount of history. Not encyclopedic by any stretch, but better than most other options.
