I drill the holes for the inserts myself, using an 11mm drill. And I really need to hammer them in. Pressing them in is not an option.


I use 11mm too. But it feels even tighter than what Gibson probably used back in the day; pulling vintage studs from 11mm holes is harder than pulling them from original holes - even the real tight ones.

Darn, it does look good. And playing red hollow bodies will make you famous sooner or later.

Speaking of resemblances, Jack looks a little like Michael J. Anderson who played the backwards talking guy in David Lynch's Twin Peaks. Michael was in Mulholland Drive too, another neat Lynch movie. Here's Jack, not Michael, digging in to the 20th anniversary bass. He gets a sprightly step at 3:30.

Contrary to what James Bond says, a good Gibson should be stirred, not shaken.

He doesn't look very happy.

Has anyone seen anything about the price yet? That may put a damper on the enthusiasm.

In Holland 749, which is I think the same or slightly more than a normal one.

I like the way JC wears his JCS low.

Why should it be substantially more expensive than past alternative fins (white, black, green IIRC)? Am I missing something new/different about it other than the flamed wood? They'll probably hike the price a little, but not much I think.

Because flamed maple is more expensive.

This has a gigbag, a strap and a certificate.

Don't forget the strap and gig bag. *Chris beat me to it. I'd say Jack seems happy enough Rob. Without knowing too much about his personal life, I'd guess he has plenty to be grateful for. His signature bass has sold strong for twenty years and he's a living legend. He is old, but at least there's Viagra around if he needs it.
