check this ****in badass pic i found
I would like to take that Alembic with a Bigsby for a spin.
did entwistle ever smash basses? he didnt seem like he did, but ive heard that he did
The rest of the group smashed junk around him, while he sat there either groovin', or givin' the bass a rub down , is what I've heard.
I'd give a kidney for any of those...(I like the T-bird especially!)
I read an interview with him where he said that smashing up his basses wasn't his thing, but he did manage to smash up a few...
Awesome, they're even on the ground.
In a B.P. magazine, I *think* it said he owned at any one point 300+ basses...I'd have to go home to dig out the article, but I'm pretty sure that's what it said.
Anyone know what that three pickup bass is, back and to the right of the ric?
Looks like a Fender Bass VI.
looks like the bass 6..but the pickups look too big..either it was modded, or it's a fender jaguar guitar....ive got a color picture very simular to that...ill scan it when i got home...its got more basses, including a few stingrays
The inventor... this picture illustrates one WHO understood excess, and the humour in it...
They are pickup rings, the first version  ones had them, also on the first version bass VI only had 3 switches.
Ok, WHO knows which instrument in the picture is the most collectable? Hint, even without the star power it still would be over 50K.
This book is avaliable at amazon
Bass Culture: The John Entwistle Bass Collection
I've seen a similar pic before.......must have been before he had his buzzard...one day my collection will be that big! one day!
Here you go...
would it be precision bass number 1? or the lucite precision...or the bigsby loaded alembic?
(EDIT: I mean the Gibson guitar, not the Alembic bass)
A friend sent me a link last year to Christie's auction site, they were unloading a bunch of the Ox's stuff. The Frankenbass was up there as well as some others, and for a lot of dough. The funny/strange/sad part is that in the auction lots, there were $50,000 basses next to $10 1970s Armitron watches that he owned.
