    I just picked up a new bass. I found it at a shop, and simply couldn't resist. It is a Carlo Robelli Ripper Copy. It plays pretty well as is, but it needs a new nut and a better setup. It seems to have everything the Gibsons have. Except it has a bolt on neck. It even has the Varitone, which is very cool in it's own right.

    My regular camera is dead, so you'll have to settle for a cell pic.

    I found this one in NH at a used gear shop. I tried to do some research, but I couldn't find anything about this bass. Not even a picture. I traded an Epi Valve Jr and a few cheap pedals for it. I think I got a good score.

    can anyone tell me anything about this bass? i know it was made for Sam Ash by a Japanese maker but I can't figure out which one. the neck plate say steel adjustable neck if that is any help.

    OMG!

    THAT looks EXACTLY like my FIRST BASS, color and ALL! :(

    I've been looking for one for a L O N G time. I bought mine new in 1977/78 in Hempstead NY.

    Sold it for the real deal a few years later but have been looking for one for about 15 years....should you EVER think of selling, PLEASE keep me in mind!:hyper:
