The Outpost Cafe / Suggestions for photo hosting site?
« on: January 10, 2018, 06:16:25 AM »
I thought there was a thread about photo hosting sites but can't find it.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a good site?
Thanks!
Denis

Bah, not being able to see the photos while I'm doing this is not working for me.
I'll have to figure something out.

I chose to post this here since Glenn was such a heavy user of Gibson basses.
For fun on a JT forum I put together a timeline of Glenn Cornick's basses from pre-JT through Wild Turkey. I later included Paris in the range because I finally found a photo of what I believe to be the Eccelshall Thunderbird he had built using hardware and the original pickup from his Inverness Green NR. The photo online was simply titled GlennCornickTomPeterson and I found references to it on Eccelshall's website, but none of the links to photos of it worked for me. I've emailed the company for info and/or confirmation.

Apologies if this bass has been discussed here before.

I like it!

Gibson Basses / New Embassy at Sam Ash
« on: January 04, 2018, 11:06:26 AM »
Today at Sam Ash I saw they actually had one of the new Embassies in Antique White. I was curious so I took a look. It's small and light and looked good until I felt the frets. Sharp edges all over the place and most of them seemed to be incorrectly cut to fit the width of the fretboard. I was surprised but wondered if the thing had sat in an ice cold truck for days and somehow caused the wood to shrink. I thought it was a shame.
Also, and I didn't know this, the Embassies are made in China.

Gibson Basses / NBD!!!
« on: December 28, 2017, 07:09:47 PM »
My new Epi Vintage Pro arrived today. This thing is spectacular! Fit and finish are excellent, nothing out of place, not sharp edges on the frets.  I tuned it and played it not 10 minutes after it arrived. It sounds GREAT!
Epi has a real winner with this one!

It seems that right now I can't post photos from my library right now. Anyone having a similar issue?

Gibson Basses / Anyone ever tried building a mahogany Ripper?
« on: December 16, 2017, 03:08:37 PM »
I thought about this the other day and wonder what a mahogany Ripper would sound like. Rather curious about it.
Has anyone ever tried building one?

Other Bass Brands / Hamer 8 string in action
« on: December 09, 2017, 07:27:40 AM »
I was asked if I wanted to play bass with a couple of friends in a project they are working on. So, while studying Rockpile songs, I found this vid. Nick Lowe with a Hamer 8 string!

Gibson Basses / Ripper Family Photo
« on: November 21, 2017, 07:36:44 AM »
I realized yesterday I'd not taken a photo of the Ripper family so here is one now. Though they all sound different they are very much of the same family! It's a little blurry..
Left to right, 2012 G3, '73 with Seymour Duncan pickups and my '80. The '80 weighs almost a pound and a half more than the '73!

The Outpost Cafe / Saw King Crimson here Oct 26
« on: October 29, 2017, 02:36:33 PM »
So, King Crimson. I'd never seen them before but listened to a lot of their music in high school and college, so when I learned they were going to be in town there was no way I was going to miss it. It was the first time King Crimson played in Raleigh since March 29, 1972 when they performed in Dorton Arena.

I'm glad I went and immediately wished they were playing for two nights.

The show was incredible. The music was delicate, brutal, technical, warm, dissonant, orchestrated, beautiful, unnerving, cacophonous, melodic, brilliant.
It was an assault.

Here's the setlist from the show.

The Outpost Cafe / Reason for being AWOL...
« on: August 05, 2017, 09:05:05 AM »
...because I've been working on my damn Indian! Finished it, finally! I have about 1000 miles on it now, though I'm still working out bugs.
This is a great motorcycle and really, because I built it from a pile it is, and always will be, a great source of pride!

Gibson Basses / NBD- 1964 EBO!
« on: January 21, 2017, 10:06:42 AM »
A friend (Rexdiablo on here) and I agreed to swap my Sunn Coliseum and the Sunn 2x15 for his '64 EBO. It's a terrific bass and he loves the Sunns, so we both came out ahead!

Gibson Basses / NR II on eBay
« on: March 19, 2016, 07:11:03 PM »
Looks nice, though it's a strange color.
Not sure if it had a neck break but you can see the joint. Looks too even to be a break.

Other Bass Brands / New Bass Day!
« on: March 17, 2016, 09:28:14 AM »
My buddy saw this at his local GC, sent me pics and I asked him to pick it up for me. A few dings but the price was more than right! My buddy says it's a gem.
