My newest green bass (T-Bird style)

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by funkycarnivore, Feb 27, 2002.


  1. This one has been floating around the Dudepit for awhile. I've always been conflicted over whether I think it's attractive or ugly, and now I have no choice, since I'm getting it! I took it in as partial trade for a bass I wasn't using. It's a custom made green Thunderbird style bass that was put together by the folks at the Washburn Custom Shop (the guy who conceived of and built it works for Washburn/Randall). Pretty cool!

    Sweet. I guess your three way deal at the pit worked out. I have lusted after that bass for a while, myself. but, i guess it isn't a Dude Pit bass until it's been owned by Funky C, right? ;)

    I love how the binding pretty much consumes the bass. I'm curious to hear your impression of it. And, of course, curious how long it stays with you...

    So do you keep buying and selling in a frenzied loop of basses or do you have a money vault like Scrooge McDuck that you swim in? And just so you don't get the wrong idea, I'm asking out of sheer jealousy. :D
     
  7. Hmm, yeah, it does seem like I get a lot of basses, doesn't it? Yeah, I usually get rid of one or two. In this case, I sent my Roscoe LG-3005 (which I wasn't playing) to a buddy, who sent his Warwick to another of our friends, who sent me this green one.

    I'm actually down to about six basses or so--yeah, hard to believe, ain't it?

    It looks like you're hooked-up for St. Patty's Day! :D
     
  9. Well, Funky, I usually really dig your choice in basses but I don't know if I would have traded a Roscoe for that bass.
     
  10. Er....well,uh....it....um....certainly is....uh ..green!
    :p

    That bass looks how I sound!:D

    It actually looks like a well made ax though,I dig the fret marker dots.
     
  11. Oh, by the way--I did get a few bucks, which helped to finance my "other" gear addiction. It wasn't a straight trade for my Roscoe.
