Gibson Basses / strange Grabber on Ebay
« on: February 17, 2018, 08:00:25 AM »

Not much information about this bass.
I have a hard time believing this is a bass that Gibson built. The neck pocket doesn't seem to fit very well. And the pickup ring looks home made.
Looks like somebody made a different body for an old Grabber.

Anyone seen this before?

Other Bass Brands / Italian design: Noah No-No

Noah No-No.
Italian design.
Aluminium with carbon neck
Volume and Tone are those big holes. They're connected to the potentiometers with a sort of v-belt.

Totally wacko. And therefore very cool  :mrgreen:

The Bass Zone / No Treble on Facebook

I think the No Treble page on Facebook is ridiculous.
It seems to me that all the morons that used to crowd TalkBass have all all been gathering there for some reason.
The silliest questions and the dumbest posts can be found there.

Or is it just grumpy old me?  ???

Bill's Shop: Projects, Mods & Repairs / Brooks EB-TB

I've got a new bass ready!
Best one so far.

All the Brooks basses have been a take on the first EB-0 with Les Paul Junior double cut body shape. But they're all 34" scale and all of them combine shape of the EB-0 with the characteristics of another classic.
This time it's a love child of the EB-0 with the Thunderbird. Hence the EB-TB name.

I made the center piece nine ply mahogany and walnut. Glued flamed mahogany body wings to both sides.
I used nickel plated hardware. And a 9.2 K humbucker from EY Guitars.
The pickguard is three ply with the flame of the Brooks logo engraved. And the lines on either side or cut out. This was done by a friend of mine with a cnc machine.

Even looks good without pick guard...
I didn't drill holes for the screws yet. For the pictures with the pick guard I cut the screws off behind the head. Leaving just enough to screw into the pick guard without touching the wood of the body. And I used double sided tape to keep the pick guard in place. So if anyone wants to buy it without pick guard, that is possible without leaving the holes  8)

The new guitar is likely to be showcased at the CES show in Las Vegas which starts this coming week.

I like the design of the guitar.

Gibson Basses / What is a realistic price for a 1964 EB2?
« on: January 01, 2018, 05:25:28 AM »
I saw a 1964 Eb2 the other day in fairly good condition. Some buckle rash and a well executed headstock repair. Color is a sunburst.
What would be a realistic price these days?

Gibson Basses / Q80 on Ebay

Are you in an eighties hair metal band? Looking for a bass that fits with the spandex?

This is your bass. It's even been reliced for you...

That price is ridiculous...

Gibson Basses / Nikki Sixx sig Thunderbird on Reverb
« on: December 20, 2017, 12:39:49 PM »

With Mike Lull pickups, chromed hardware, hipshot ultralight tuners. And normal controls instead of the kill switch.
A pretty bass (of you clean up the pick guard)
