The Bass Zone / Sad news about TM Stevens
« on: September 19, 2017, 05:48:05 AM »
I've been reading sad news about TM Stevens.
Several websites are mentioning he is suffering from dementia and won't ever play again.

Resurrection time!

A friend of mine bought a 1964 EB2 the other day.
I told him about the three way toggle that Joe installed to use the fully engaged Mudbucker in all its glory.

Now he's asking me if I could do the modification for him. But I'm afraid all the pics in this thread have been photobucketed...
Can anybody help maybe? Joe?

Guilty as charged!
It took me at least ten years to see the genius of the design.

Haha. When I first heard him I thought he was a joke (still do)
He sounds like a schizophrenic who keeps switching between Mickey Mouse and Scooby Doo.

It would make right handed playing up the higher registers pretty uncomfortable, with the strap running behind the neck.

I Wouldn't be so sure about that headstock Dave.
First of all there is orange peel. Normally you wouldn't see any of that on original paint.

Second, the face is black. The original is not. Why would they have decided to change that on their copies? The Japanese copied features like that quite slavishly.

The ageing is no proof at all. If the refin was done in the eighties the lacquer had plenty of time to age.

The only thing that is really confusing is the Epiphone logo.
But it is too obviously not a Gibson to put a Gibson logo on. So maybe the person who did this figured it was more credible to put Epiphone on. Still a major upgrade to the other crap from that age...

Bridge does look terrible indeed. And so does the rest.
Clumsy thumbrest.
And that fake mudbucker is typical for the cheaper seventies rubbish that the lesser Japanese brands built. These looks almost square instead of rectangular. And the polepieces aren't screws.
