Old basses in action

Older is better here. If Kebo has to explain, you wouldn't understand.

Old basses in action

Postby bejahu » Mon Dec 08, 2008 12:45 pm

It's been kind of slow around here. How about we fire things up a little? Here is a picture of me playing my beat-to-snot '66 D&B Oly White Jazz Bass. It is the best bass that I've ever touched. Came to me courtesy of Uncle Kebo! Would any of you like to join me in sharing some live photos of you an your favorite vintage bass in action?

So what's the number for "vintage"?
Isn't it 20 years?

...and when's it qualify for "antique"?
