Why did they have a nurse dancing in the audience? He wasn't that old back then.

^^^

At least he understands that the baritone switch is a cut switch but I wish he would stop saying that the other position "enhances" the bass. It doesn't. It's a passive bass.

The perpetual suggestion that the switch somehow is a "bass boost" can be pretty infuriating. What is good is that the video must be one of those rare demos of an EB-2 that isn't just a mess of clipping or a totally soulless DI feed at whisper volume. Nice to here an EB-2 rattling furniture as intended. I know that guy claims not to be much of a bassist in other videos, but he's pretty solid here and really good at pointing out that the bass does a good Motown or R'n'B tone.

Having said that, he's always a wee bit reckless when he  has those instruments in that narrow corridor at the start of each video! I was watching that headstock swinging around near those shelves slightly nervously.

I had forgotten about this one - a rather prominently featured Rivoli too.

I don't understand why they would be against consumer capitalism. Aren't they trying to sell albums, merchandise and concert tickets? The bass in the video doesn't seem to match the audio unless it's a reissue.
Contrary to what James Bond says, a good Gibson should be stirred, not shaken.

Epi in stock black fin = reissue, yes.

Seriously?  You're talking to guy who was actually born behind the iron curtain.  What do you actually know (aside from regurgitated US propaganda)?  I have no love for it, so it's clear, and feel like punching idiot hipsters wearing hammer and sickle shirts, of which I see far too many, but there's ignorant on both sides of that fence, QED.  I say what you call 'freedom' ain't worth bombing half of the rest of the world, rattling yer sabers around like you got a small penis complex, and sending your boys to be maimed by IEDs for either (especially because it's actually not under any realistic existential threat, despite the rhetoric to the contrary; see previous about complexes).

You do realise that there is a whole spectrum between (so called) free market capitalism and Soviet style communism right? 

Also, do you realise I was just posting a video with an Rivoli in it - why would make this into a political thread (cuz those don't get locked every dang time)?  Just let it be about the dang bass; cuz if you bring it, it will be well met.

I posted this way back in a different thread but that video was deleted from YT.

I appreciate the response GG and agree that there is plenty of room for nuance in between extremes. I'd like to think we could be capable of political discourse here without lashing out in emotional temper tantrums. I'll respect the wishes of the moderators if they think that's impractical.

Who's the one that's butt hurt?  Sinking to condescending statements as regards my emotional state, that you cannot possibly have any valid knowledge of because this is an internet forum and you can't, for example, hear the inflection of my voice.  Stop projecting onto others; it's pathetic.  It's the internet, and if I respond to such things, it's because I am going to have fun with it.

I was generalizing and not trying to say anything disparaging to you specifically. Yes, intention can be hard to decipher from typed statements. I hope you can trust that I sincerely wish you nothing but good fortune and prosperity.
