  1. I just ended up replacing mine as the OEM EQ only seems to boost the mids and lows. (actually - this bass sounds pretty darn good just wired passively. When I searched for a replacement on-board preamp I found this Artec BE2 module that looked like it would drop right in... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Artec-BE-2-Bass-Built-in-2-Band-EQ-On-Board-Circuit/161355510982?_trksid=p2047675.c100011.m1850&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D27538%26meid%3D56626c80067042b6b933c19ea78abd79%26pid%3D100011%26prg%3D11353%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D10%26sd%3D161475449830 But I ended up going with a Kent Armstrong 3 Band EQ I got on the cheap via eBay Good luck with your effort.
  2. Thanks - I hope to find a someone who can plate the tuning knobs and bridge back to the original gold look. The only way I could source new ones was to purchase the entire tuning machine and there is no way to find a matching bridge so I'll give plating a shot. I think I paid a bit much for it but with a case and shipping - sure was more than my other $100 CL basses.
  3. Scored me a nice little Epiphone EBM-5 this month. Purchased from a high end guitar store for $425 shipped from NY to CA Very Good condition. Preamp works well. No scratches or dings. None - not even the back side. Yet - the back-of-the neck shows real use (I like that) Frets are in good shape, Neck is straight. Tuning peg handles have been painted black and bridge is worn (typical) Came with Epiphone leather strap and aftermarket HSC. I'm really liking this guitar along with my Epi EB-3, Goth TB and Rock Bass....

  5. HI Aoresteen - I left you message on in your personal profile.. I Just purchased an EPI Rock Bass - very similar to yours and I need a pick guard. Thanks Brian
  6. Hi Tony,

    Can you please do me a favor?

    I purchased a Rock Bass and also want to buy a new Pick Guard from Terrapin Guitars. Could you please email Mary Newell at info@terrapinguitars.com and provide her your first and last name and if possible your order number so they can locate your template to make one for me?

    Thanks - if you have any questions - email me at brian...
