    He also played an Ibanez Black Eagle which was a lawsuit era jazz bass copy. He's playing it on the cover of Bleach
  9. Billy Gould's Ripper tone on FNM's first album sounded remarkably like a Rick.....both are made of hard maple

    Way later on I saw him with a warwick dolphin made out of zebrawood in the studio.
  12. Yup, Thats his Ripper.

    Thats the same bass at the MTV VMA's that he through up in the air and had crash back down on his head, giving him a concussion(spl?). My second and first real bass was a 79 Ripper and it was tough as nails, if one came across me again, I'd definitely by it again (this time with my own money, not by gift :D ).
  13. Well all of you are wrong. On the dvd from with the lights out for the first 9 tracks (the whole '88 rehersal) he is playing a Ibanez Black Eagle. Maybe i read the question wrong but i thought thats what he asked.... Oh wait on second look their was two questions and only one guy answered the one... whoops

  14. I remember that...

    I never much cared for Nerve-Anna...and when I saw that I think the Coke I was drinking came out of my nose!
