Another "what IS this bass?" thread

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by lunarpollen, Apr 17, 2010.

  1. It looks like a Les Paul shape, has two open humbuckers that look like bass versions of typical Gibson humbuckers without covers (4 polepieces per coil).

    Man, she's hot!

    Oh, there's a bass in there?
  3. uh. I'm not sure how anyone's supposed to figure it out. Looks like it could be a Gibson or Epiphone les paul bass (probably Gibson with the nice binding) with swapped out pickups.

    Bet its a Greco, or something similar, odd star on the headstock makes me think its not a Gibson.
  5. i caught the headstock on pause, and it just had a star on in, no words from what i could see. and also from what i could see it looked pretty sick but the way they shot this vid is hella annoying. that damn camera was going everywhere.
  6. I don't know if the headstock star is an inlay done at the factory or just a sticker put on after it was purchased...

    I took some screencaps:

  7. Geez. Now I'll be humming that song the rest of the day.

    Haha same here. The melody was not especially memorable or 'melodic' for me.

    But nice bass! Maybe a mod - job?
  11. Yeah it's not my fave song of theirs, I like some of their others a lot more. This one's kind of blah.

    My guess is that it would cost much more to reproduce than it would to buy the real thing.

    Looking closely, you can make out a faint trace of the Eko logo up on the headstock (3rd pic from top).
  16. Eastwood Guitars has done some Eko reproductions... I thought maybe they might have done this one as a new model... But it looks as if the bass in the video is a genuine Eko...

    It is indeed an EKO Kiwi I put the star on myself (had to change the machine heads). I'm obsessed with them to be honest, I own 2 Kiwis and an EKO Barracuda as well as an Eastwood hollow body reproduction here's a quick glimpse of the barracuda but i don't fancy having no sex for a few months till my girlfriend calms down

    Actually according to the official Eko site above the silver one is a Kiwi too -i didn't know- i bought it from a German guy on Ebay that told me it was a barracuda
  19. Hehe I like your taste in basses! And both the Dogbones and KfB!
