    Anyone seen the Folgers coffee magazine ads with a little kid holding a Veillette Citron 4 string?

    No, but I've seen the Wal-Mart commercial where the kid in the family band is holding a Warwick.

    i absolutely remember them- i wanted one so bad i could taste one!!
     
  11. Bass Northwest had one on their website about a year or two ago. They had that thing forever and it was less than a grand! It looked much nicer then the headless Citrons nowadays. I havent seen the walmart commercial or foldgers ad yet.

    Absolutely! The adverts for them gave me major GAS.

    The ad is in the latest issue of Road & Track.
     
  15. The only Citron basses I'm familiar with are the Harvey Citron's. Not the same beast I presume.

    Actually Harvey and Joe Veillette worked together waaay back then (I'm guessing late 70's-early 80's). Made a pretty cool bass. If I hadn't hooked up with Michael Tobias, I would have bought one.

    It's on p. 76 of the February 2002 Road & Track.
     
  17. Brad's absolutely correct. And Veillette's basses and barritone guitars are IMHO much more attractive then the Citrons. Wish they would get together and design another bass or two, hehe!
