The Outpost Cafe / RIP Malcolm Young
« on: November 18, 2017, 10:16:27 AM »
A month ago George Young passed away. Today the sad news came that Malcolm Young died.
A huge loss for the family. But also for AC/DC fans across the globe...

Rest In Peace Malcolm.
And thank you for all the great riffs and songs.

I don't have a Gibson Thunderbird (reverse) here at hand to measure the angle of the body and the neck. I only have my Greco as a reference...

I've been reading sad news about TM Stevens.
Several websites are mentioning he is suffering from dementia and won't ever play again.

Other Bass Brands / Burny Thunderbird anyone?
« on: September 09, 2017, 06:29:19 AM »
Never seen one of these. Looks good as far as I can see from the pics. The string through body is a nice feature with the three point.
The BIN is very tempting...
