    Back when i first started to play bass the bass i always wanted was a violin bass,the one used by Robert Deleo on STP unplugged. I had found one but didint have the money and by the time i had saved up it was gone i later kicked myself for not thinking of a down payment.One day in my browsing of the basses section at talk bass i came across a thread about the hard to find orlando bass i had craved, to my luck the nice man was selling. Now just about all these years later i got the bass i missed out on.I tried to post the pics the former owner sent but they were too big can i email them to someone to make them smaller since i dont have the programs to do so. Thanks

    Thanks very much treena that was very nice of you. I am so lucky that this bass found me when i had lost the one on ebay. Isint is one of the coolest hofner knock offs actually it is more like a gibson EB1.

    It is not as diverse in tone as the Jack bass but i am very happy i had finaly got it. The bass is also is not as good condition as my Jack.
     
  16. I really like this bass. I am looking for the EB1 though to add to my collection of vintage basses!
