    That's not an explorer. Wrong body shape.


    I believe that the other bass mentioned is the Sarzo Washburn bass.

    I believe you are thinking about the Rudy Sarzo Signature model...I don't think that this is that model.

    it's not an explorer, it's a custom bass from first act, google it and go to the site, it's there

    Here's a sweet Explorer bass that was posted at Harmony Central a couple months ago... anyone who came here looking for Explorer bass porn should dig it

  9. +1, what band is that? I'd love to hear how that FirstAct sounds in a real band setting.

  10. How funny - i just found a link today to the first-act guitars on a guitarforum.

    They have some beuatiful guitars (and basses)
  11. I wonder if Wal-Mart can special order them? :D

    i'm married with kids, so this is meant as a compliment: that bassist is hot!

    takes me back to my teenage punk rock days and the type of girls with 'tude that i was seriously attracted to.

    edit: I just called them...they have a custom shop in Boston. They have some pretty cool designs if you ask me. But you have to email them for a quote form. There's nothing on the website to help you with custom shop inquiries.

    Mindless self indulgence. That girl used to play a sterling or stingray back in the days when she dyed her hair blond.
  14. No way, thats MSI's bassist? My girlfriend used to be into them heavy, I have heard quite a few songs.. not too impressed. By the way, what is it that they have against Jimmy Page??? lol.

    They are a funny band thats all, no worthy innovations.
  16. I hate that song. Don't ever disrespect the master in my presence. I love Zeppelin. Probably my favorite band so far in my musical journey. Jimmy Page is a good man too. Did anyone hear about his work down in Brazil?
