    The orignal rob allen mb1 is for sale on evil bay. Sorry i cant post link (im posting via my nokia wifi tablet, which is better on paper than practice). I believe the seller is mister mb himself. Between this and the gorgeous six string mb2 i missed last week, its a robfan delight.
     
  2. Holy ****!!! Mark Brown himself. I can't believe he'd sell it.

    I came here to post this and found your thread already started.

    Yes, I can't believe it - Mark Browne himself selling the MB-1 bass. I wonder if he's got some newer models from Rob and figures this one is worth more as a collector's item than as a regular use bass for him.
     
  4. I didn't ask him why he was selling it but basically sent him an e-mail saying that he and Rob are brilliant. He said he was looking for a good home for this one. Too bad it has lines and I just purchased a house Friday.

    Um, I am new to TalkBass ... my bass is limited to playing bass in church worship team so I hope you don't mind me asking. At the risk of sounding ignorant (which I guess I am) who is Mark Browne?
     
  6. He's a session guy who has played with a ton of bands. He's important in the Rob Allen context because he asked Rob for a bass that could cop a half decent upright tone as an electric bass. Mark was a friend of Rob and Rob was a guitarist who had built a few of his own as more of a hobby. So they worked on a design and came up with the MB1, which eventually became the MB2 for everyone else. In short, Mark helped design the MB2 and turn Rob's hobby into a profession.
