When I saw "the last waltz" by the band, I was immediately in love with the ripper tone (he's also a great player!) Rippers in sunburst are rare! Seems like a fat Jazz? That said, I also love KISS, and while I know the Grabber wasn't always his main......I still associate it with him. Basically a P bass with adjustable fatness? What are your thoughts about the Grabber and Ripper?
