    I have been missing this for awhile (it was stolen a few years back) but decided that maybe I could try posting here just in case.

    It was an early 70's Ripper bass with a natural finish.

    It is very easily identified from a mod that it had. (I doubt any other Ripper would look like this.) It had a jazz pickup added right in front of the bridge. I'm not entirely sure that the pickup worked or was hooked up correctly because it didn't seem to add anything to the sound at all. The jazz pickup did not have a cover and the route was not very unprofessional. If I remember correctly it also had to have a little bit of the pickguard removed to accomadate the pickup.

    It had it's original case but who knows if that is still with it.

    If anyone sees a Ripper (or has previously seen it) please email me or PM me. (I miss it very much)

    Thanks!!

    I thought I would bring this back to see if anyone has seen it.

    It must be out there somewhere.
