Same. Sold within hours of hitting the internet.
No basses, but I bought a Gretsch 6120 Eddie Cochran when I was playing a lot of Rockabilly. I rarely play it, but every time I get ready to sell it, I just can't part with it.
Sadly, this never gets played.
I played a 4003 for about ten years back in the 80s. Loved it but after a while I moved on. About five years ago I got one of the S models with the single mono output. It was beautiful but I just never bonded with it. Sold it on eBay for what I paid for it new.
It's turning out to be my Jaco jazz bass. I love it when I do play it, but most of the time I"m playing the L2000 or the Tony Franklin.
It think it's because the Tony Franklin already covers all the bases that the Jaco does. There isn't really anything the Jaco can do that the TF can't do. But it's lovely and very well built.
Have no idea what that is but it’s nice!!
Cme exclusive squier bronco
I am unfamiliar with these circumstances. I’ll play any of my basses anywhere, anytime.
Love the way it looks, but I find myself reaching for my P or SR
Hah! sorry no pic, but very similar to yours, a schecter Stiletto elite, Beautiful trans redfinish With quilt maple top! it looks like amillion bucks, but its a neck through, so I believe thats why it has a very Chunky neck, Bat thick! like holding an apple while playing!I've injured myself playing it for long periods of time, So I veer severely away from it when I wanna play! although it is very ergonomic otherwise. with that unwieldy neck, So sadly it is hidden away in deep storage (ergo : no pics) until I need its tone or I grow bigger hands!
Uhhhh..., that kinda looks like a poo poking out!
But I get the aesthetic.Maybe a decorative Chess piece might look cooler, than a big round brown poo like extrusion!
My Karl Hoyt 4 string. It’s actually my favorite bass guitar ever, but the 60’s band I was playing with preferred the aesthetics of my P-bass or my Jazz, and all of the gigs that are starting to trickle in now for me are on upright bass.
You know basses have feelings right? They like being stared at even if they are not played... Just sayin!!!
Well, “brown poo like extrusion” never came to mind for me or the dozens of people who have told me how much they like the extended strap buttons I make and have asked to buy them, so I guess it’s an ‘eye of the beholder’ thing. My approach is definitely functionalist, so the aesthetics weren’t really an issue when I made them, but if I happen to come across a cool metal Rook someday I will drill it for a screw post and give it I try. If it happens, I’ll post a pic and credit you for the idea.
like some chicks we know, right!?
those are actually nice! i used plumbing-brass fittings/nipples: they work but are not as elegant as yours! nice job!
My 60s Eko Florentine.
It's a nifty throwback: cheap medium scale hollowbody from Italy, that was available from catalogues, back in the day. Bought it in the Noughties as a backup bass to my Ric 4001 / P bass.
Clearly made in the style of a Hofner Violin bass... and sounds very much like one! Currently strung with flats and going 'au naturale', with no pickguard. It was great as a backup (tiny! SO light!!) and sounded wonderfully 'thumpy' when my band was doing 60s cover songs. Being completely hollow, it's loud enough to play "acoustically" for sitting in with mates...
BUT: currently performing psych / prog rock (not really got the grunty tones of my P or Ric 4001) and it needs a HUGE amount of compression to play normally, so no practical use for now... but sounds so much of its time and (while can't be seen in the photo) has a lovely flame to the back. Secretly hoping one of my children will gravitate towards it, to learn on...
I have an emerald flow... doesnt fit into my americanna gigs
Pretty much anything from guitar center.
This joker right here. We have had a tough time bonding. A very fine German made bass but we just haven't seen eye to eye much. Now I do have its sister in a German made Corvette Standard Nirvana Black Satin that gets a lot more attention.
