    She plays really well, from the very minor time spent (maybe ten minutes as I just got it), but I am pretty excited about it. I am going to give it a good run tonight. :)

    Looks killer!

    what a thing to buy on a whim!
  10. Nice bass! I had an original 1959 EB-2 with the banjo tuners and bakelite pickup. Sold that one to Paul Turner and I have always remembered it fondly. Saying that, Paul puts it to better use than I ever did.

    I was thinking of putting some flatwounds on her. What do you guys think? I am new to the semi hollow, so I am just experimenting. But I want to know.

    Would you mind telling us what you paid?

    There is one at a local music store with a very good price on it... at least I think it's a very good price.

    I paid 1200. I honestly don't even know if that was good. I was just drawn to it.
  17. What a deal!! That's an absolute steal matey!!! Well done!

    Beautiful bass. As far as strings, the TI JF324s will be too long on account of your bridge and 2 + 2 headstock. They would sound fine, but might break since the big part would be wrapped around the tuning posts.
