By washburn og traben?
and I mean the million pickup star bass version.
yeah, i've always wondered too.
i dont think they sell well.
I just can´t imagine anyone but Bootsy with the star bass.
I believe there is someone here who has one that was custom made by Chris Stambaugh.
My friend Mike Brown who plays bass for Ringling bros circus plays a Washburn Bootsy sig model.
Wow, that's pretty rare!
so the only owner is a friend of a TB´er
I have the Washburn model, before they dumped him for signing a competing deal with Traben. I have very little interest in imported basses, so the Washburn was my logical choice. Mine is Pearl White with Gold BadAssII, Grover Titans, Mirror guard, white EMG J-set, bound birdseye neck, and red and clear crystal encrusted body, guard, and headstock. Baseball bat deep "C" neck works for my huge hands but could be troublesome for others. A great conversation piece, but it is pretty thick and powerful sounding with the EMG's...plenty of pop and cuts through nicely. I use Pigtronix effects and it is a match made in heaven growling through the Envelope Phaser and Disnortion pedals !
Got any action shots? Love to see em.
No pic, no bass.
Do you know for a fact that that is what happened?
Our friend FunkintheTrunk owns that, I've held it and it is gorgeous! also has a bass trem and a custom John east preamp. Very drool worthy.
Wow thats beautiful. Although natural fancy woods is not very bootsy like.
My favorite of all the "Bootsey" basses! It has all of the classic Bootsey features at a price that is still within reason. My least favorite Bootsey model would be the gaudy $12k Warwick version. Not that the "Star" basses aren't a bit over the top in the style dept., its just that they manage to do it with flair & character.
That looks slightly evil.
