Gotta love it.
VINTAGE 1962 HARMONY H-22 BASS GUITAR USED W/CASE | eBay
I can't buy it...my name is Mark.
Fantastic! Why should drummers be the only ones to splash their name on their instrument? Bless you Swingin' Jim for making a stand... Let's just hope it catches on.
Well...at least the original owner's name wasn't Richard.
You almost made me snort coffee out my nose, damn you!
I'm kinda torn on this one. I'm thinking two things:
1. How to save that finish. There's gotta be some expert around here who has the answer.
2. It's actually kinda cool. Gives it that rock-a-billy vibe that just goes with the H-22.
if your carefull enough using a hairdryer should do it just heat it up so the adhesive starts to melt a bit then polish the **** outa it
I'd think with a 1962 nitro finish, the last thing you'd want to let near it was a hair dryer or heat gun. That would be a great way to take most of the finish off.
Lotta this stuff in PsychoBilly and fringe Americana.
"Leaping Trout" camper shell decals, etc., etc.
*Well, my name is James- but the ladies call me Swinging Jim*
Yep. And to me this bass is a great 'folk art' example...sorta what a 1950's western swing or rockabilly guy would have. Its definitely got a 'feel' about it.
Got my name written all over it.
I just wish the auction was ending Thursday (pay day) so that I could bid on it. I would remove those letters of course. The H-22 is the last bass on my Extreme Wish list.
I'd buy it but the letter would have to go. Surely they could be removed and the bass re-finished.
Remove the lettering, sure, but I wouldn't refinish it. Original finish looks awesome as is. Probably have to put a trout sticker or something over where the letters were, as undoubtedly the finish underneath will be damaged/discoloured from the homely lettering.
Needs new lettering anyway, those ones be rilly ugly.

Maybe a bumper sticker. Or a tank badge from an old bike:

Of course it'd be best having a Triumph badge for a Triumph bass (Gibson, Epiphone, Framus...).
