    So my first bass is Olympic bass. Which was a cheap houston brand back in the day.

    I've never seen another one ever and you try googling olympic bass. :eyebrow:;):p


    The guy wants $50 for it. I will go and try it out of course, but I'm kinda excited to own another one. haha Its not P/JJ like mine, but just plain pbass. But it is black and maple with a matching headstock like mine.

    Thought I'd share.

    Thanks.
     
  2. I have a friend who has an Olympic P bass, are they a good instrument?

    I was still fairly naive to the world of bass when I first played it and that has been awhile

    Wow!! Ive never heard that. Nobody on TB seems to know what they are. They are decent, I like mine. It had an excelent stock pickup that I ended up ripping out and putting in a bass I play more. So we'll see how much better/worse this one is.

    Here's my Olympic Bass. I think I bought in in 1986 . It's served me well for almost 35 years! 20200508_093150.jpg
     
  5. Cool, I'm always amazed when someone discusses yet another brand of bass I'd never heard of.
