    no the stingray on the upper right IS an OLP. The bottom stingrays have set necks and jazz blocks on the fretboard.... ie not sourced from OLP... even the bridges are different (and I have seen those before somewhere but cant remember... look at the closup of the bridge for the ric or stingray)

    wow didn't even notice. these could be really nice players...
  8. I like the looks of the double buck rays too, I could do with a cheay backup for some gigs. Not so keen on the set neck and basswood body tho.

    However, I really like the look of the block inlay neck!

  12. That Black-On-Black ProBass Jazz Bass, Vintage Modified is only $192.00 USD.

    Pretty cheap, I say. Still --- it's sex!


    What's wrong with it? Besides the import and duty fees?

    anyone played one. they look great.
  14. I'd bet they are no different to the basses you can get on ebay for ~£60, which seem to get reasonable reviews.

    (tho granted, not seen dual bucker MM's quite like those ones before).

    It looks good, but I can't get one shipped to me here in the Seattle Area.

    Hi Everyone,

    I am the UK distributor for Retrovibe basses and will be pleased to answer any questions you might have.
    I am also a noob to the forum so please bear with me re. posting and general jargon.
    Very pleased to see the interest in the basses.

    I am so tempted to jump on one of those double buck rays as a gigger, starting to get a bit wary about where I take my Warmoth J. Everthing about it would be perfect; pickup config, scale length etc. But I'm loathe to until I've heard from anyone who's played one.
  18. If I had the spare cash, I'd get one, stick a couple Nordie MM4.2's in there with an East BTB MMSR preamp, would need to carve out a battery comp tho, hmm, if only money allowed such things!

    David, Hi and welcome to talkbass. There are some rules recarding commercial users that it might be worthwhile having a wee look at.

    But, while you're here, I was just wondering, what is the body wood of the Jazz models you stock? Also, will you be getting in any P-Bass clones in the near future?

    (also, you mention in the fluff for the white Ray4 that you'll be getting these models in, in white, just a copy paste error I believe, but, just so you know and whatnot).
  19. The Fakenbacker looks nice. I've never been able to afford a real one.

    Hi there,
    The body on the bolt-on Jazz basses is also basswood.
    There are no P-bass clones in the pipeline but I have just uploaded details of the AERO2, an aerodyne-jazz style which might interest you.
    From what I understand from the moderators I'm OK to answer questions and post a link so here goes: www.probass.co.uk
    Thanks for the heads-up on the typo!
