    The rest of the group smashed junk around him, while he sat there either groovin', or givin' the bass a rub down :smug:, 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...

    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.

    They are pickup rings, the first version [1963] 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.

    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.
