Thanks, Tony. That looks like an interesting site, I'll add their press release section to my RSS feeds.

Do you mean you have one on order from the US custom shop, or an import model?

I know the US custom shop is very flexible on what they're willing to do, especially using one of their standard shapes as a platform.

Gibson missed their chance doing a Jack Bruce Reissue EB-1.  That is a short scale solid body bass icon!  They could use the same pickup as the SG RI, 460 Schaller bridge and working tuners and they would have a great sounding bass.  And they could do a few carved maple top variations  and double pickup versions for "GOWs"


You never know, it could happen. Jack's involvement would be doubtful, though, since he's a Warwick endorser.

There was a short-lived Epi EB-1 reissue a few years back. It had a strange looking matte finish. gweimer owned a fretless one for awhile and IIRC did some extensive mods to it. The only ones I saw in stores were set up so badly they were hardly playable.

I know nothing personally about the quality of Reranch products but nitro has never been known for its durability.

I'm always a little skeptical of health news reporting, seems the major media are always trying to panic the public. But take a look at this story. If it's accurate, it could be a major breakthrough.

I'm glad so many familiar faces (well, at least familiar usernames) have signed up already.  :)

We're committed to being here for the long haul.

I wonder, is the Thunderbird image available as clipart? If not, you could probably find something very close.

Hi Chris. Glad you solved it, but I wonder if it's a common problem. And if so, why it wasn't dealt with in the design stage.

I dig it. :) Both the bass and the song itself.

I agree about the confusion. Returning to the old name is a good move.

Paul at TDPRI quoted part of a Fender press release from Jan. 8. over at his front page. I'll requote the parts of interest to us:

Fender Musical Instruments Corporation announced "upgraded" American Standard Series Telecasters today.....Fender's Stratocaster, Precision Bass and Jazz Bass guitars are also receiving the series upgrades......And for the first time, Fender will be offering the traditional Precision BassĀ® in a five-string passive version, taking the classic platform to a new level.

So, looks like the American Series will become American Standard again.

I'll get a sticky together shortly that will include this and other Gibson resources.

I don't think I've seen it in nearly-completed form. Very nice!

I have to admit that I'm surprised by the success of the SG-RI. Not that it doesn't deserve it, but that a short scale has done so well. And a non-entry-level short scale at that.

I'm pleased with any Gibson bass success.
