What kind of bass is this?
Stingray "copy" or the bridge and pickup we both moved closer to the neck.
who are these potential tools? I smell gimmick but I could be wrong.
The image name says Gibson, so I'm going to hazard a guess with...
Gibson. Ripper, maybe?
The bassists name is Brian Gibson.
Good guess I guess....
It doesn't look like there's much left , but I'd guess it's a frankenbass: jazz body, stinray neck, MM bridge, and aftermarket pickup.
Shucks! *snaps fingers* Meh, Rippers are fatter in the caboose anyway.
I'd like to also point out he is using a piece of string, or yarn as a strap.
That must hurt after a while.
I love the burnt finish! Especially on the fretboard.
Its a Stingray alright. Just, theres not much left to it. Stripped electronics, stripped logo, no pickguard, control plate, duct tape input jack, I bet. Poor, poor Ray. Someone must pay for this. Grab your torches and hayforks and meet me at town hall!
What about the jazzz body?
anyone listen to the MP3's on the site??? cringe.... I didnt know basses went that high..screechy...distorted...headache...
He uses a guitar string in place of his G. Which is how he gets some of those tones. Also why it looks like he only has three strings.
Who's the guy with the funny makeup and the underwear
over his head? What's that about?
this is a bit random but i for one enjoy lightning bolt greatly, though my question to the original poster is this:
do you know hwat he uses for the G string? i've heard rumors it's a banjo string......
oh, and the stuff on his head is a mask/harness that holds a mic to his mouth that is pretty distorted so he can drum and speak/sing
fantastically fun band.
(i don't mean to divert topics but it's semi related)
it cant be a stingray, otherwise their'd be a big hole where the control plate is, stingrays are front routed not rear, could be a warmoth creation, looks more like a sadowsky-ish jazz to me, but id go with something along the lines of custom made/warmoth
The old worn look is one thing, but personally I draw the line at the duct tape....... :scowl:
