I love the guy's playing, very musical, but what's so unusual about using a Ripper like that? It is very much a well-behaved, musicianly instrument and not so much an all-out rock axe (that is more the Grabber). Peter Cetera and Greg Lake were certainly Ripper players where you could hear every note and were meant to hear it too.
It ain't no country until Dave sez it is!

Black cats have funked on Rippers and Grabbers, one of the Brothers Johnson played a grabber.




There is nothing inherently unfunky about a Ripper or a Grabber (much less a G 3 with its spiky sound). They are all maple or maple/alder basses, long scale, 21 frets, pups with enough treble, ample string to string width, you can slap them and I'm sure they were quite a bit when they were popular in the mid seventies.

Hey, even some of you guys might have heard Fehlfarben's Es geht voran! back in the day. Only realized now what that busy new wave-funkish bass line was played with, a G-3!!! G stands for Germany of course!

hearing people sing in german always reminds me of TRIO, a great band imo.







while on the minimalism thing i like these guys as well.

Yup, Trio's minimalism had something. If you like The Flaming Lips, you shpuld be able to appreciate Trio.
