    It's not the same Geddy used. Geddy played the 4/12. That one's a 4/6.


    Where's JT? Maybe he can tell us how this badboy plays.

    The 4080 was a bolt on? I was a little surprised by that, but I've confirmed it to be true.

    Wierd.

    Sexy.

    I want one.

    It says that it is through body. Maybe he put the neck plate on for reasons unknown?

    I have a 4/6 doubleneck shaped like an EDS 1275. Made somewhere in the orient. Mahog necks, rosewood boards, short scale bass, standard Gibby scale guitar. Pickups woefully thin sounding, but I'm working on it. Not much, as the body is made of 2" Birch Ply and weighs almost as much as a Volvo, but it looks bada$$ for a short set. I've slowly acquired parts over the last few years, new bridge for the bass, new tuners for both necks, but trying to decide wether to get a new, long-scale neck for the bass. Better off taking it apart and sending the body through a drum sander to make it thinner, that would be a more useful mod. I do have a 500T (I think) at the bridge, but it needs more. The only actual customization (as opposed to upgrading) I've done is remove the bass tone pot and split the outputs so I don't have to use one amp for each, but that's totally reversible.

    If you can find a light-weight dubble, hang on to it. Or let me know.

    If you look at the questions that the seller has fielded, it's obvious that he knows very little about this instrument. First he claims that it's neck through, when it's bolt on. He doesn't have any additional pictures of it beyond what is shown in the auction. He's not even aware that it's missing the bushing on the tuner post on the guitar headstock.

    The guy is attempting to sell a fairly rare, high dollar instrument. Combine this with the fact that he's a zero feedback ebayer and won't give out his phone number. You couldn't get me to bid on this auction given all the questionable items listed above.

    ooo, that's a real nice one.

    i'd bid on it... but i have on already :D :hyper: :smug:

    yes, all the 4080's and 4080/12's were bolt on necks for both necks. anyone wants to drool over a bunch of pics of them go to http://www.the-music-connection.com/ website - they have a huge selection of all kinds of rics, including more doublewides than an oklahoma trailerpark right before tornado season. :bassist:
