I had the same idea. And hard to see. I thought the first pics were bolt-on but it looks set?

I think this is discusses before but i always find it hard to jusdge a bass sound, especially on youtube. Some songs I prefer to listen to youtube cos it's enormous compression made the bass even fatter and bigger than on an album track.

I met him several times and the last couple of years he was hard to love. Drinking an awfull lot, being drunk in an hour, not functioning and leaving the party after an hour and a half, shouting, ... Maybe his abuse of alcohol has something to do with it. Still very sad.

The best Thunderbirds never had a 3-point.

Just use an angled plug, and put it though your strap. Hollow bodies and almost any instrument with an input at the front, need an angled plug.

I think it's quite interesting. The Firebird headstock, the bodyshape, the Gibson bridge... not just a knock off.

Nice little fact: Lord Mountbatten was German and named Battenberg. But because of the war and the anti-German sentiment, he changed it to Mountbatten.... .....but WWI and not II.

The big reason all Brit bands started with Framus, Egmond/Rosetti, et cetera, was that it was prohibited to import luxury goods from the US into the UK. This had to do with the war and economics.

My thoughts:

I still think it's hilarious that the iconic Slash Les Paul is a copy, made by Kris Derrig. So all the Slash signatures are Gibson copies of a Derrig copy.

Having said that, I think I stated this before. In my opinion the best and most influential guitar players are the ones who inspire young people to pick up a guitar. When I was young all guys wanted a Fender because of Kurt Kobain, an LP (Epi) because of Slash, or an Epiphone The Dot (335) because of Noel Gallagher. I don't think those guys are the best players, but they influenced hundreds of thousands of kids toy buy those guitars and start band. So especially Epiphone sold a shitload of LPs and 335s. And a lot of now famous bands started because of them. Young guys I know now want certain guitars because of Foo Fighters, QOTSA, .... So in my opinion those guys are better for guitar world and music world than Vai, Satriani, the lot...
No young kid wants (or can afford) a Yin Yang Fodera because of Wooten, a fretless five (six?)-string Warwick because of Steve Bailey, but they want that P/J/Tbird/... because of [insert name current hip bass player] of [insert name current hip band] plays it.

So yeah. Slash is good:)

If your haemorrhoids look like that, please go and see a doctor. I'm worried about you!

Gibson Basses / The Return of the EB-0F ?

[sarcasm mode on]

This might be the start of a new series? Let's hope the EB-0F comes back. If it has the same price, around 6000 dollars, it would be a steal!
