the name says it all do u like or dislike the bass???
My first bass was a G-3. I liked it, for the most part. Traded it for a Fender. If I were to ever find one again in good shape, for the right price, I might consider it.
I also had a G-3, (my first real bass purchase), and loved it. I just wish I had better gear to play it through back then. It wasn't as clean as it could have been, and that allowed me to trade it off. (...for a Rick, though... ). Wish I'd kept it, but, hey; "turn the page"...
I had a G-3 back in the day. I'd get another one.
I think they're really neat in general, but I've never had a chance to try one out for myself.
yes i really like them and i'm wanted one since i started playing bass. but i like the gibson rippers alot more with the two pups in them. i would take a grabber but if i where to buy one i would really want a ripper.
i do however like the grabbers headstock better then the ripper.
I've got a friend that's got a Ripper. Punchier than all get-out! What a sound!
Have one, love it.
I saw a band the other night that had a bassist who was playing a Grabber. The thing sounded like ASS! Now, that may be attributable more to the player, but his tone overall was unappealing.
I love them and I've been wanting one for many years.
They are pretty hard to find in near mint condition, nowadays.
Some cats love em...i dont know why...The only cool thing about them is they are light(which kills tone in my opinion), and they have the "Movable" Pickup which is sorta cool....I guess....Ive sold about three of them to kids who want to sound like Thrice......
The guy who taught me to play had a Grabber; punch like few other basses I have played. Neck was a little unwieldy, body is huge but thin, playablility was an issue, but...
...I love that bass to this day. Lovely old-school, rarely seen axe.
PS- At lessons he'd let me play the Grabber or his late-70s P-Bass instead of my little beginner axe ('till I moved up ). What a guy!
