    Hi,

    Oh man! Every time I see your Ripper it makes me want to kick myself, hard. I wish I'd never sold mine. It's a classic. Is that the same strap too?

    Thank you for your indulgence,

  9. Thanks BC it is the only bass I would never get rid of ever. All original electronics and hardware even the little plastic washer under the bridge cover, still have the key to lock the original case :) It has yellow with age, but hell so have I ha ha ha more recent short Dec 2015

    1977-ish 18y/o. Bass is a Univox Badazz w/short scale pencil neck. Very easy and fast to play.

    Last year. 56y/o I usually play my custom jazz bass but I had just put new strings on the this one and wanted to try it out. This one also was modded with a full EMG install. Lakland 55-01 in the background.

    I don't think BassCliff should post his pics in here. While he very much the "old" and the "fart", I've never seen a pic where he's "grumpy".
