    At the prompting of savit260 in this thread, I'm starting the TB Hollowbody Bass Club and proclaiming myself President and member #1 :D.

    So far the members are:

    #1 - circuitspore [myself]
    #2 - savit260
    #3 - GlennW
    #4 - mr sprocket

    So anyone with a hollowbody/semi-hollowbody/chambered bass, post here and include a picture or at least tell us what you play! I'll come through and assign member numbers every few posts.

    Here are my two HBB's: 1969 Gibson EB-2 (in factory black finish) and 70's Yamaha SA-17

    And more in the future, I'm sure.

    I have a '69 Guild fretless Starfire. Can I have a number and my secret decoder, please?
    ...I still don't have pictures of this bass--I'll try to take some soon.

  7. I own an Epi Jack Casady Bass for 6 years now. Bought it brand new from Musiciansfriend.

    It's a sunburst finish, but I don't have any photos I can post yet.

    I'd love to get a Lakland hollowbody; what an instrument! :cool:

    I don't know why hollows aren't more popular than they are. :confused:

    Pennydreadful how do you like that Eastwood? I was thinking about the orange but I came across a really good deal on a Cabbie Dean Stylist.

    I like it so far. The neck really surprised me- it's nice and chunky. Feels great. It's 1.5" at the nut, but it stays almost the same width all the way down the neck. So it's kinda thin, but it has a fat profile- just the way I like it.

    I'm waiting to get some flats on it before I make a final judgement on the tone, but with the rounds it gets a nice P-bass-through-Ampeg kind of tone. And that's through a Squier guitar amp.

    Count me in, I bought myself one of those rondo ASB's for X-mass, shortscale but it's string through the body. And a very thick body, so It takes full scale strings, D'Addario chromes on mine, stock strings sucked, strung with flats it sounds great.

    If you like or love Violin style semi-acoustic basses, then this is one you should check out if you ever happen upon one.

    I have two of these. Both are 1966 Klira model 356 Twen Stars. Made in Bubenreuth, Germany. Sound or look familiar?
