I was lookin around the local flea market the other day , and I came across this real vintage looking bass. Its a six string , the head stock is made of stainless steel I think , or atleast plated with it, its got about six volume and tone knobs all together and is in a red-wood-sunburst color. At first look I thought it was a Peavey, then when I got closer I saw it was an Epiphone. I am not familliar with this model , never seen an epi like this. When I asked the seller how much for the bass he responded in these exact words " Boy that aint no bass, thats a guitar, one played by Hendrix and Eddie Van Halen gave it to em. But son its 3000$". The guy seemed like a hardheaded dumbass so I didnt bother telling him that Van Halen giving that "Guitar" to Hendrix was impossible. But it got me real curious about the bass and i searched all over the net looking and have found nothing, so does anyone know what this bass is?? Any info at all?? Not that id buy it , cause im almost broke, but Im just interested. The guy wouldnt let me play or even touch it. But it stirred up my curiousity.
