Jim Lea live.
I just watched your YouTube video of a ‘60’s EB0 yesterday. Hopefully you’ll shoot a video of this one too.
great pix..looks like it's seen some good times....Never tried one but i see one hanging at the local shop occasionally.
My EB-2 has a Dimarzio One in it. It's a spectacularly good sounding bass guitar.
Scott, I really worry about you sometimes.
not to hijack the thread but wow. Did Diggins make Jim's original bass? He make yours? That's bananas....
I've never gotten my hands on a vintage EB0 or EB3. Do the new SG basses even come close to replicating their sound?
Mine sounds good, i unhooked the choke and it opened it right up.
I remember seeing stoner rock? band and the bassist had one of those. I’ll never forget how it sounds.
Cute how they assumed bass players can count past four.
No, not in my experience with both. The pickups in the modern SG basses are completely different, and if I recall are more or less modern Thunderbird pickups under the covers (though that was years ago, when they were listed as TB+ pickups, on the Gibson sight now they are listed as SG bass pickups, but I haven't heard of any redesign). However, you can purchase a more proper set of Mudbucker pickups from a number of pickup winders, and that'll get you much closer.
Mine was the way it is when I got it almost 40 years ago. I have been told that the wiring is butchered. Works for me. Whoever butchered it, did a good job with it. I don't know for sure, but I suspect that the Dimarzio One went in sometime in the early 70s, since it's a little different from current versions, and it was aged already when I got the bass in 1982 or so.
I have tried to figure out what year my EB-2 is many times. The SN comes up all kinds of ways, depending on where you look. I think it's probably a '68, but it could be anything from a '67 to a '70 or maybe even as late as '71 or '72. It's a red, dual pickup model with no mud button from the factory. It has the late '60s intonable bridge instead of the kind of fixed bar earlier ones had, but it also has clovers and some other things that make me think it's earlier rather than later. Who knows. It came from a Gibson factory a long time ago.
Or just get a Mudbucker from eBay or Reverb. I currently have two of those that will eventually go somewhere or another.
Yes Diggins made my bass and Jims. Jim put his bass up as a pattern, even autographed mine
Man, he had some pipes in him!
Might as well throw in a little Glenn Cornick, while we're at it.
The double stop solo is a bear to get right... I flamenco style that part of the song.
Nice snag, too!
I used to play that line on a bass when I was a kid but nowhere as near as well as he played it on that EB-3.
Funny you posted that, because that solo is the only thing I can remember trying to learn note for note when I was a kid.
It's all connected, Bob.
I'm out of the prog rock band I was in, but we had a heavy JT influence. That particular song was both challenging to remember it note for note, and play.
I never played it out but I can still remember it, I lifted the phono arm up and down a lot of times for that one. I still think it's a great solo.
