El Degas basses?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by dvh, Jul 2, 2008.

  1. I have an opportunity to cheaply pick up an 80's El Degas P bass. I'm thinking of it only for a fun modding project.

    Anyone have anything to say about these older El Degas basses?
  2. where's the pics at.

    Also, never heard of them...
  3. Hiya!
    I owned 2 el degas basses about 6 years ago. a nice Ric copy, and a Gibson Grabber copy.
    the ric was a great bass after i fixed the neck pocket. and added a dimarzio jazz in the bridge position.
    I loved the grabber and wish i still had it, i replaced the stock pickup with a real grabber pickup and it was awesome! it has a great jazz-like neck on it and i loved the huge flat body.
    all i know is that they were a copy name that we used to find in pawn shops in Canada all the time, i dunno bout the States or Europe.
    all in all, good basses, maybe without the electronics, pretty sturdy construction. i don't see them anymore really.
