  1. Eatwood is a great name for a bass!

    (The bass is pretty enough, but that bridge is a total disaster - just like the one on my old Guild B-301)

    :(
     
  2. Fixed title :)

    There's one listed on ebay. I really like the finish, but I'm not a fan of the headstock.

    No, it's got too many things wrong with it......

    Bridge should be a two point like the BaCH and the headstock is.........ugly, and those pups aren't going to cop a Thunderbird either.
     
  7. Well if any one would know it would be you!

    Thanks for pointing out the flaws. Also is the Bach a short scale?

    No, 34"

    The BaCH was the result of 2 years worth of efforts by the members of a small very Gibson bass oriented forum, we supplied the spec and worked with them to make an affordable, faithful reissue, aside from the BaCH's choice to use an Artec pickup it's very good. I've owned two and refitted Mike Lull pickups into them - very nice basses at a fraction of an original Gibson, and you wouldn't fear taking them to a bar gig.
     
  9. Tell you what it is hard to stay a big fan of short scale's these days. Use to be so many amazing short scale offerings. Not to many now days.

    Shame Gibson couldn't quite get their own reissue done...

    Still rumoured Gibson may do it tho.......

    Mike Lull is definately going to offer a Non Reverse Thunderbird, I have provided a couple of mine for measurements. It's in the R & D stage.
