Ripper Family Photo
« on: November 21, 2017, 07:36:44 AM »
I realized yesterday I'd not taken a photo of the Ripper family so here is one now. Though they all sound different they are very much of the same family! It's a little blurry..
Left to right, 2012 G3, '73 with Seymour Duncan pickups and my '80. The '80 weighs almost a pound and a half more than the '73!

The Replica G-3 is the best Ripper shape bass ever.
It ain't no country until Dave sez it is!

It sure has the biggest set of cajones of all of them. Sadly, it is still really underrated.

You need a G-4, Denis. Unfortunately Rob's pics are no longer visible (thanks, photobucket  >:().

I never used Photobucket. The pics were on an old band website that is now defunct.
I can't seem to find them on my Mac at home. Maybe at work.

Is "G4" a joke?  I don't think I've ever heard that before :-o

Rob announced it on April 1, 2008.

Yeah, I'd agree on the G-3 being great! I played Denis' and it made an impression for sure!

I found the pics that I made nine years ago, on my computer at the office.
So I put them on my website.

Here they are:

Haha, I'd forgotten that one so you could have recycled it into a 10th Anniversary Fooled You Again.  :mrgreen:
