Hmmm... Strange but I like it.
I had one for many years. I regret selling it, It played and sounded sweet!!!!
Where is the pickup???
I appreciate the heck out of vintage basses, but I don't collect them for obviou$$ reason$$. If I DID collect them, I would buy this bass at this price - no question! Those old scroll-head Ampegs are classic for sure. Rick Danko played one (not this particular model) when they filmed The Last Waltz.
Wow I really want to play that!
In the body underneath the bridge. It was called the "mytery pickup". They have some info about it on this page http://xstrange.com/asb1.html
Wow i havent seen one of those for a while
That is in great condition and a good price (currently)
Those are very rare, and that one looks to be in great shape
I'd expect the final price to be considerably higher than what is bid right now ....
Saw an old TV appearance by Marty Robbins and his bass player was playin one of these, it sounded suprisingly good.
I saw one of these in a music store in Prairie Village, Kansas in 1965, and I have wanted one ever since!!!
I heard the fretless devil played that day, and it sounded A LOT like the P-bass '65 P-bass the same guy played just before it, but I am thinking the tone control was rolled-off all the way. Dark fretless goodness!
I wish I could afford to bid on this one, but WAIT...doesn't someone make a reissue of various fretless Ampeg scroll head basses???
There's only one guy that does a decent re-issue; nice basses, not cheap tho.
He's mentioned a few posts up.
Oh, the same guy that did the restore?
I've seen the Ampec Scroll basses, but never one like that. I think it looks really cool with the thin wings.
