  1. Hi there, thanks for your reply and the Andy Baxter link, cheers
  2. Hi, I came across some info on the net when I was browsing the net for info on rippers. As there were a few sites with info & photos of them and a number for sale on ebay across the world, I thought I would look a bit further and came across this Gibson forum. I haven't checked it out before so I thought I would post something on it and see if I get any response. I've owned a Gibson Ripper with cherry burst finish since 1975, I bought it when I was sixteen, for the princely sum of £500.00. A lot of money at that time and the sum of all my savings from two years summer employment between school terms. I bought it brand new from a shop in Sauchiehall Street,in Glasgow,Scotland.It was called Cuthbertson's Music but its long gone now. It was the only Ripper I ever saw for sale in Glasgow in the seventies and I had tried it out in the same shop every Saturday for a couple of months before buying it - I'm sure the salesman thought I was chancing my arm and would never stump up the money for it! I had tried out many other bass guitars over a couple of years as I dreamed of owning a professional instrument, after playing a couple of cheap Japanese copies for a couple of years. Loved the sound & the feel of the Ripper and eventually purchased it. I gigged with it for quite a few years in different styles of semi-pro bands and it was a great instrument. I'll take some photos and post them on here when I get a chance, its still in great nick. cheers.
