New, but temporary G.A.S. cure...

A choice, not an echo.

New, but temporary G.A.S. cure...

Postby k5koy » Sun Jun 20, 2010 6:48 am

My latest aquisition as of today. Last owner had removed all the active electronics so its now passive. Over time, I will try to restore it to original. But its a good player now, so all that can wait! Got it home and cleaned off 29 years of grime, added a set of new strings, and its awesome! Who all wishes you were me right now?

I like the headstock's shape and proportions.
Sound clips?

Yes Rob, its totally unique. I have never seen this large a headstock on a bass. Ive just finished an attempt at restoring the PCB and active electronics. I will install it tonite for a test run, and if all is good, I will post some sound clips.

Nice indeed!

I just passed on one of these that was available for a while in Nashville. I then heard the seller decided to keep it as he just couldn't make himself part with it. Ain't love a wonderful thing?
