check out the aces high video from 1984...
good bassist.. but weird bass if you ask me
Yeah, I can't imagine any metalhead kids buying the unicorn bass to look cool like their idol.
Ummmmm... No thanks!!
Man that is a neat bass, IMHO without the graphics!
I forgot that hella silly stuff like unicorns used to be metal. But then glue sniffing used to be metal too.
I really like the smooth design of the headstock.
And it must sound like a mix between an Explorer and a P-Bass! Nice.
Lado makes excellent gutiars and basses, but that's definately not one I'd spring for.
when did unicorns become cool again....or ever.....oh it didnt>? thats what i thought
I actually had a chance to buy Steve's own Unicorn bass back in the '80s when Lado was building me a couple of basses... And I didn't do it!!!!! I'm kicking myself now because the next guy that came in after me bought it (and then bought the next couple Steve turned back in too).
Stupid, stupid, stupid!!!! Man, the things you do (or don't do) that come back to haunt you...
dose anybody know were i can get one
Not sure Steve's had the unicorn though - anyone remember?
I don't ever remember Steve playing such a tragic thing as that. But maybe he did.
I can absolutely guarantee you that Steve played more than one of them... I saw him play one at a show in Toronto - probably because that was where Lado was based.
And in Joe's store (Lado) there were all kinds of pictures of Steve playing them.
Back in 1986/87, I think during the Somewhere in Time, they all started endorsing Lado, and there were several magazine's picturing them all showing off their new Lado's - Hit Parader, Guitar FTPM, Creem, etc. I think they also used them on the next album's tour as well, but then I stopped paying attention to them for a few years.
not so sure about that headstock but the body just looks like a rounded Thunderbird to me
yea it definitely did.
I only saw them one time and that was on the powerslave tour. After that I really kinda stopped digging them; the new them anyway. I guess that's why I never saw Steve playing such a thing.
Picture for all those who can't remember that long ago!!
