Gibson Basses / One of a kind Thunderbird on reverb
« on: October 19, 2017, 12:24:58 PM »
Nothing extreme but outside of the optigrab I like the look of this, simple and clean.  Even with black hardware It looks good  ;D

Other Bass Brands / Lap King? NR
« on: September 21, 2017, 10:18:17 AM »
Never heard of Lap King but looks like it was started by a former Hamer employee that builds Lap Steels.  It's a pretty cool take on a NR.

Gibson Basses / Staircase porn and a gratuitous Lo-Z family photo
« on: June 20, 2017, 05:33:53 AM »
I recently finished my project of replacing the newel posts, ballusters and handrails in our house; something I've never attempted before.  After completing it I can say I wouldnt wish this project on my worst enemy.  I originally thought it would only take a couple weeks but ended up being almost 4 months start to finish (Weekends, Holidays and a couple "sick" days).  That was for 12 posts, 130 iron ballusters and new handrails. TBH the project was delayed a couple weeks after I ran a miter saw halfway through my thumbnail, luckily stopping just as I knicked the bone.

Assuming no one will actually want to see a photo of my handywork I'll post a picture that people around here may actually be interested in.  The stair work makes for a nice backdrop I think  ;D

Gibson Basses / '76 Korina Thunderbird
« on: May 09, 2017, 06:08:04 AM »
So if the rules at GC are they give you 60% of what they sell it for, does that mean an employee at this location paid $2k for this?  If so I may need to drive to Florida to sell some gear.

Seriously, how do they get something THIS wrong?

Gibson Basses / NOS Ripper
« on: April 19, 2017, 06:57:17 AM »
Fresh out of the box, who wants to be the first one to put a scratch in it?

I always wonder when I see these things, who sits on something like this for 40 years without opening it?

And are looking to record an album.  I wonder if Duff will end up joining them, or maybe Mark Evans will avail himself.

Gibson Basses / Don't drink and ebay
« on: January 30, 2017, 04:39:15 PM »
So I recently sold off a couple of U87s leaving me with a surplus of gear money burning a hole in my pocket.  Combine this with a few too many fingers of scotch and I apparently thought it would be a good idea to own one of these:



At least the sale was based on a low-ball offer I made in my stupor. And despite the vitriol expressed by Uwe I don't find it all THAT bad.  Its better than its flying V predecessor at least, and the finish reminds me of a time when I had more hair. 8)

Gibson Basses / Oh, the 80s...why?
« on: January 14, 2017, 10:29:34 PM »
Im 100% guilty of having owned a "crackle" finish bass 35 years ago but this one is just wrong.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Gibson-V-Bass-Guitar-/152393031710?hash=item237b55201e:g:tXEAAOSwnHZYdxQ2

I know the 80s V gets no love but someone please put this thing out of its misery before It hypnotizes me into growing a mullet and joining a Poison tribute band.

The Outpost Cafe / Today's Bass Lesson
« on: November 09, 2016, 11:27:41 AM »
"Never turn your back on a puppy"

While packing up my '67 Bird this morning (for rehearsal this evening) I briefly looked away only to turn back and see this monster chewing on the headstock.



Don't be fooled by his innocent looks, I suspect he has a heart of darkness lurking within.  Luckily the damage was minimal and I'll have to just chalk it up to added "relic-ing"

The Outpost Cafe / Gaga buys Zappa
« on: October 24, 2016, 04:21:03 PM »
Or at least his house anyway.  I remember the house sale coming up in one of those Dweezil interviews of late but didn't know until I read this that Lady Gaga was the buyer.  As a studio nerd I hope she restores it right, but i know nothing about her really and dont have much faith. That said, I was shocked to read in the article she actually knew what a compressor was...

The Outpost Cafe / Proof of the Krakens existence
« on: October 20, 2016, 04:55:08 PM »
I always loved this story when I studied it in school. I'm not buying the British propaganda that her majesty's navy sank UB-85.  I hope the send down submersibles and find teeth marks in her hull  ;D
