    Two strikes against you Mr. Money: a guitar and a stuffed animal. Tsk, tsk. If it weren't for that kick ass bass you might have been banned.

    Its no ordinary stuffed animal.

    It is a purple, yellow poka-dotted hippo.

    ahh..the Grabber.....

    Brings me back to Ralph Armstrong and Jean Luc Ponty days!

    He made that thing sound great....

    Come to think of it..dident Gene Simmons have one for a while too??

    :eek:
     
  6. Yep, I think Gene played the same style as Mikes - as in colour. :)

    looks good Mikey :hyper:

    enjoy it and NEVER get rid of her!!!!

    BTW: Does he only play a Precision now?
     
  9. He does play a Precision bass now. But he used a Grabber for a good 4 or more years.

    I believe Mike played a G-3

    Gene Simmons played a Grabber.

    Krist Novoselic played a ripper. . . and so will I one day.
