  Well that's the point isn't it?

   Congratulations!  These are great basses though often maligned. A few years ago I bought a '73-'75 EB3 and it's a beast!  One of my favorite EB3s ever!

  I have always found Jazz basses to be anemic.  While I am not a big fan of TB plus pickups they are sure to give your Jazz a kick in the ass, I say go for it.

    If I were to add another Grabber to the collection I would pop for a early burgundy one like played. No way would I spend 13k on a Grabber just because he played it a bit and signed it.

    While not a Thunderbird that looks great! I love the extended scale on the upper register and the dead simale one pickup one volume layout.

    The finish in real life is rather mundane.  A massive good sounding bass, certainly better than the 80's attempt.  Personally I would have liked to have seen it in a natural mahogany mahogany or cherry finish with a w/b/w pickguard.

8 Who's That has been rehearsing away, here is Naked Eye from our most recent show.

   That is smok'n hot!

    Doesn't matter,  I am being paid good money to play and people love it. For the last four years I was cleaning toilets at night so my family had health care. It literally almost killed me.  I am happy to  play just about anything,  who am I to judge someone's music taste?

That's GC for ya!

12 Hope the link works.  I find myself in a Fleetwood Mac tribute! I am pretty excited about it,  we travel quite a bit but it pays well enough so that I don't need a day job.  The 69 is a great match for the gig as John played a stripped natural 60's Precision before he got his Alembic. I love the Schaller pickup!  Lots of power,  great full tone and lacks the grunt the Dimarzio Model P has. Someone here gave it to me, I can't remember who but thanks!
