Trade two basses for one

Recommended Posts

I have two custom made Fender Basses made for the player here is some info. One is a built to spec Fender 64' Jazz and the other is a 51' P-Bass. They practically play themselfs, Set up with easy low action. They are more vintage correct than what Fender is putting out now. I am hoping you would like to trade Your Eb for one of them. I am in a Cream tribute band and need the Jack Bruce Bass.

Hey Gaolee, never looked there. Is there one there?

 

There was a guy looking to trade a Fender for an EB-2. I thought about it, since I have an EB-2, but he wanted it to be perfectly stock, and mine has a DiMarzio One pickup and no mud button. The finish is excellent for what it is and how old it is, but it's not stock. So, I never followed up with the guy. It's probably just as well, since I would miss the EB-2 if I ever sold or traded it.

Here it is. It's basically a 335 with a 30 inch bass neck, and I love it. I got it in trade for a Danelectro Hornet bass I had back in the late 70s and never really though about what an amazing piece of history it is until recently. I got the Dano for free because somebody found it in a bathtub and it sounded dead. The neck had been shimmed with match books, so I took it apart, shimmed the neck with pennies to get the action how I wanted it, and it sounded much better. So, for the price of a little work on the Dano and some pennies for shims, I ended up with an EB-2DC. For those of you who are horrified by the case, yes, I have another one for it now.

That's a good looking bass, I can only imagine how much feedback comes from the F-holes.

[biggrin]

Is it me or John Entwistle play a EB-2 in early 60's. He rocked that bass hard.

 

Well I am jealous Galoee.

It's a cool bass.

I'm not sure he ever played an EB-2, but I can sure get an Entwhistle sound out of it if I set up the amp right. Yep, it's an Acoustic, so there you go. I have never had feedback issues from it, even with everything absolutely cranked.

is that a Darkstar pickup in the neck?

 

It was there when I got it in about 1982, so I'm not 100% certain, but I think it's a DiMarzio One. Whatever it is, it makes the bass have a warm, woody sound if you want it, or an absolutely thunderous sound if you want that. It's not great if you want a lot of treble, but you don't slap a hollowbody if you want it to sound good anyway, so it isn't really an issue.

Archtops' "f-holes" are not "sound holes" in the same sense as

are the round center holes on flat tops. The main purpose of the

f-holes is not to be openings but just slits, which create a "free"

section of the top, severed from the edge areas by the slits.

 

Altho this extra resonant area might respond to external sound

pressure and therefore there'd be some feedback, it's not as if

external sound is actually entering THRU the f-holes in a really

significant amount ... which IS the case with the round hole on

a flat top, and why covering the round hole works pretty well to

reduce feedback.

 

Those who stuff foam into f-holes are also reducing feedback,

but not cuz the hole is closed ... but because the foam in the

slits is damping the resonance of what would otherwise be a

"free" and very resonant section of the arched top.
