  1. Up for sale is a Original Gibosn EB-0 Bass guitar. It is all original and is in good used condition. It has been well taken care of and I put fresh flats on it not to long ago. It has good low action, it practically plays itself. I It has that great warm distorted "Jack Bruce" tone and very fat sounding for funk. anyway here is some specs, again everything is original Tuners (Hold solid) Pick Up Volume/Tone (No Crackling) Damper Pick guard and thumb rest Ebony Fret Board The body has "Checking" all over, but it is cosmetic and of course dings but nothing serious. I inspected the neck socket, headstock, no cracks of any kind. I'm looking to get 1,500 or best offer. It comes with new hard shell case. Trades, I'm looking for a vintage Fender Jazz Bass or Tokai, Greco, ect plus cash on your end. Here is a link for more pictures http://s683.photobucket.com/albums/v...stic%20%20136/
  2. He who laughs last is the slowest. I don't get it, what is the punch line, the inside joke?
  3. Golem, it has epic John Entwistle tone. I might keep it and sell my EFlat Bass. Right now I'm just trying to figure out what sounds better at church.
  4. so you guys will never believe this. Yesterday I traded my P-Bass for this. 1997 Alembic Epic Bass. Sounds good and plays great. But it's on the block right now. http://cgi.ebay.com/Alembic-Epic-Bass-Guitar-1997-USA-Cocobolo-4-String-/270683413431?pt=Guitar&hash=item3f05fd1bb7
  5. I'm not sure what that means. I have played tons of Jazz basses before though.
  6. Your totally right golem. The musicians who make up two percent of the audience are the only ones who can tell. But I want to appeal to those 40 year old cougers with massive racks in the front row who are still trying to hold on to the greatness that was Lead Zeppelin. I know that most people won't care if I play a bass other than a jazz. But why not have it. I have the two acoustic 360's, the Hammond Organ (A-100, very similar to the C2 that he used) and I have the rhodes.
  7. Alright guys, guess what I am back in a Led Zep Tribute band. This is good news. But I need the Fender Jazz, people would recognize that more than the P-Bass. So if anybody has Vintage Fender Jazz (I can add cash) I would like to trade.
  8. I have a story to tell and why this particular pedal is do dear to me. a long time ago my friend "Garlow" taught me how to play bass. He was patient and kind to show me everything he knew. He was a death metal guy and I was blues but I didn't care I absorbed whatever I could from him. He played bass but he mostly played guitar. Well not to long ago Garlow passed away in a fatal head on accident. It wasn't his fault, the other driver was drunk. He had very few musical instruments, since a lot of his stuff was stolen over the year (He lived in bad part of town). His grandma (who he lived with) decided to give out his musical instruments to his best friends. so I got his guitar wah pedal. I'm not sure how to use it for bass. It's so thin and weak sounding but I feel bad if I don't put it on my board and not use it. Is there anything I can do to make it sound better for bass? Thanks everybody.
  9. Haha thanks guys, I will no longer work my way up the chain of guitars. I think I spent more money on crap guitars than buying this bass. I took me awhile to see the Gibson light. I still like Fender. But you can't play "alright now" by Free on a jazz.
  10. Thanks Guys, You should see the Ric in real light. It seriously TV yellow from the nitro oxidizing. The EB bass has checking over every single inch of it.
  11. This bass does distorted really good. Clear sound eh, not so much. But it's light and it has no neck dive. I would love to get a EB-3 like Jack Bruce had.
  12. Guitardenter had this one. Vintage Gibson EB-0 from 61' it plays really smooth. Good thick fuzzy sound. I'm just glad to finally have my first Gibson now i actually have a reason to be on the Gibson forums.
  13. 4001 Ricenbacker from 81' EB-0 Gibson from 61'
  14. No, but he did have a fret less. It was a 70's p bass. I also am having Dave build me one.
  15. Here is a link http://s869.photobucket.com/albums/ab260/jessenoah/stuff%20to%20sell/
  16. I had owned a "Superbassman" as well. I loved the tone for bass, but it still wasn't loud enough even though I played it through a Vintage Ampeg 8x10

    Gibson EB-2D

    GSG When I first started out on bass, I got the Epi EB-0 Bass. I liked it mainly for it's look. It had one issue it had horrible fret buzz every where. I didn't care I got a great deal on it. So I took it home, played and played. Then after awhile I got tired of the buzz so I tuned the whole bass one Octave. That got rid of the buzz, but the neck had a bow of a archery weapon. Those Epiphone are never set up right.
  18. I like short scale, I like long scale. I just hate P-Bass necks, they are just two wide for my taste. Give me a jazz neck any day.
  19. Up for sale is highly customized 51' P-Bass reissue. Designed to recreate the John Paul Jones bass that he used. It is a serious eye catcher. Great "stripped" look that JPJ had. The bass is a fantastic player. The bass all together weights only 7 Pounds! It has a shaven Jazz neck and custom cut bone nut for extremely low action, this bass practically plays it's self. One of the coolest features is the 6-way Varitone Selector switch. These are commonly found on Gibson EB basses and Acoustic 360 use something similar. They are a Bass/Mid/Treble Boost. A fantastic feature for any bass player who uses a multitude of tones through out a performance. You can check out other basses he has built (bikebassnut) and at Certainbass.com. Keep in mind this not a stock model I am selling, this is $1,350 worth of parts and labor put into it. I am sad to sell this bass, since I am no longer in Led Zeppelin tribute band. It's brand new, only 3 months old. It has been in it case since. I am looking to trade or sell for a vintage Gibson, Rickenbacker, or Fender Jazz. or $1,200 or best offer plus shipping. Here are some high detailed pictures http://s869.photobuc...ff%20to%20sell/ Here is some specs Fender Ash Body Lindy Fralin Pick Up Gotoh Tuners Fender vintage style bridge Fender Jazz neck *Custom thin profile, custom hand cut bone nut Varitone 6 selector switch. Comes with Fender Hard shell case Email me at gswbasketball2002@yahoo.com
  20. Brain Wheats ESP 8 String T-Bird is on display at the Hard Rock Cafe in Lake Tahoe, NV
  21. Being a bigger guy (6 foot 4 inches mind you) I can take on any 34 inch scale. Maybe a short scale might be too small for me to play, but playing the bass solo on the song "All Right Now" by "Free" is tough on a 34 inch neck.

    Gibson EB-2D

    I want to believe Epiphone produces most of there new bass reissues, I have seen a Grabber, EB, Hoffner, Les Paul... Be on the look out sometimes Epiphone makes a mistake and makes a good bass once in a while.
  23. Not a problem I will tell you what I think. I play through a Acoustic 360 so keep that in mind. and If I don't like it, You can be the first one to buy it if you choose. I played the new EB-3, I did like it, I played through Acoustic B20. It had a nice thick sound
