What Rob needs to do is convince Henry J. that Gibson actually made it.

Henry J couldn't care less. So far I have received no reaction at all on a complete book about their bass guitars. Why would he bother about an obscure bass that some silly Dutchman found... haha!

If you put robotic tuners on it he'd take notice. Convince him that Gibson was ahead of its time even during the Norlin years.

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:








THAT.IS.AWESOME!
No wonder I never saw it. I don't think I joined LBO until sometime in 2009!
Why did Salvador Dali cross the road?
Clocks.

Rob, no need to convince Eastwood. If you go ahead on March 31 I'm convinced we'll be seeing a Gibson Reissue G4 in the 2019 bass model lineup.  ;D

The Eastwood version would be identical except for the scale length, woods, electronics and hardware.  :P

Henry J couldn't care less.

Nope... I beg to differ... probably has this place bugged... probably a lurker... has us all pegged as subversive... If Rob and Mark had not already met Uwe I'd have had him tagged as HJ... :mrgreen:
