  1. Hey dudes,

    I've found a picture of very nice looking all black bass on the Electric Amps website... What's this bass? The looks of this baby make me gassing for it badly. (Please tell me it sucks... :) )

    It's a Gibson Ripper that has been modified with Gibson EB -humbuckers. The original Ripper looks like this:

  5. does look like a gibby, my guess is that its a ripper.
  6. Oh boy... what an ugly headstock. Maybe it matches better with an all-black one though.

    My ripper has the neck totally bent out of shape, and it breaks my heart. I'd love to play on it again, but it's gonna take some serious work to get it back into playing condition... But yeah, Gibson ripper... nice bass.

    Yeah, the now extinct Ripper!

    The Grabber had the sliding pickup assembly.

    I never liked the looks of the EB-0 pickup but they look absolutely killer on that one!
  9. Looks bad ass with those EB style pickups!!!
