...unless the street is gonna be 1/2 of that, then I'd say "No"
...oh yeah I think the Ripper was/is way cooler, including the headstock but especially the pups- I've got my eye on a 70's all natch, maple board, black headstock, light as sin & plays like no Grabber I've ever felt (good friend had one back in HS).
COOL!!! Sucks about the price though. Hopefully a Ripper II is not too far behind!
Do they really think anyone will buy this when they could just get a real vintage one for cheaper?
I haven't heard this model but I would be willing to bet the originals sound way better.
yeah it would be awsome,but just think of the prices.
Three grand for a Grabber? They're wasting their time. A G at most for an instrument like this.
everyone has got their own sense of style and I respect that but this bass is almost as bad as the chick modeling the bass on ebay.
That is entirely too much money for a black and chromed version oneo f hte most boring looking basses I have ever seen. NOt good, not bad, but just.....not much of anything to me. 3K is far to much other gear I would much rather have.
I think at that price point limited run means less than 10!
i might be persuaded into buying the epiphone variation of this if it was of a similar price to their other basses, cuz i actually like the look of it.. (especially in sunburst..)
not likely, i'm fairly sure that fender has a copywright on their head stock design. besides there's no way gibson would want to a)make a bass that uses parts from a competitors product b)make a bass they never made in the first place, remember john's fenderbirds were all custom made for/by him.
Should I feel like playing some 90's Green Day ? Man a vintage bass will be much cheaper then a new one !
Call me strange, but I liked the Grabber better than the Ripper. And, yes I owned the original Grabber. I bought one new, when they first came out. I sold it in 78. :scowl:
Did Mike Dirnt and Krist Noveselic actually play Grabbers?? I thought they both played Rippers.
dirnt played a G3. no idea what noveselic played.
Noveselic played a Ripper, a Victory, and a RD.
The Green Day "Basket Case" song played Live at Woodstock 1994 in the Youtube video looks like a Grabber to me. The resolution on my PC monitor is crap though. Maybe someone could check.
wowzzzzer...my 3g's will stay in my pocket
I wouldn't buy one anyway, I've played completely original Grabbers and Rippers, and to me they were two of the most uncomfortable basses to play ever, not to mention that they sounded like ass.
There's a first time for everything!!
they should make epiphone ones in hope that i can one day afford it
