Congrats on your find! @Auspuff, you are now member #35 of the ORnRC, welcome!
Thx - already have a number (#16). Had to take a picture of this (from 1993). Pimped through SD pickups & Glockenklang electronics (active/passive). A really sturdy workhorse.
Sorry for the delay!
This application will definitely be considered.
@maeda, you are now member #36 of the ORnRC, welcome!
Phew! Thx for this decision - I have the Wenge fretboard on the Fortress as well.
Sure, this club is a place of joy and fun. No rosewood police around!
This thread has led me to a realization: I ended up with a red/rosewood bass completely by accident, and until this thread, I didn't know that red finishes with visible wood grain are one of my favorite looks. So thanks for all the -worthy photos!
Guys it's an honor, a real honor! My first club here and if it's my last I can't say I'd be disappointed. I couldn't have done this without the support of family, and there are so many other people I would like to thank...
I just missed one of these on the market place in red
Just for inspiration, an other, better pic of The-bass-that-started-it-all...
Epi EB-0 in Cherry Red, with Rosewood.
They are dang hard to find.
I figure Carvin just did not make that many LB40's, let alone in red.
I don't think I ever requested a club number. I'd like to join up if I can.
My 1966 Fender Precision, Dakota red and lovely old rosewood:
Mine for almost forty years now, seen many a gig. I bought it because it was the lightest P bass I'd found. Weighed it recently for the first time ever and learned why - it weighs 7.6 lbs.

What a beauty!
Here's my couple reds.
It went for $500 seemed reasonable I'd never seen one before...
Where did you see it? I got mine off Reverb.
I first saw the prototype LB40 in 1981, at the old factory. It was a black one, and they were going to send it off to Francis Buchholz, of the Scorpions (true story). I was there checking on the progress of my LB50 Koa, and they let me try it out. I immediately liked it. I asked if they would do one for me in red, and they said not at that time. Rats!
So, there I was, visiting the old Escondido factory (again), in 1983, when I first saw an LB40, in red. I never saw one again.
Then, recently, late one night, I was trolling Reverb (habit, of mine), and, there it was. I didn't even haggle, on the price. I just popped for it.
Upon receiving it, she has basically been a Case Queen, all her life, with dings and scratches you have to search for, to see.
She is currently at my Luthier, getting checked over, and strung with round wounds.
So I know I’m # 18, but this beauty joined my little collection this week and I had to post! Really starting to appreciate this color scheme the more I see & play them.
Sterling Ray 4 in Fiesta Red!
Now technically this is supposed to be a Brazilian Cherry (Jatoba) fretboard, but it looks JUST like rosewood....not like my other Jatoba fretboard which looks reddish/orange and Drastically different. Maybe it slipped out of the factory before they made the switch in fretboard material?
