Yeah, in some aspects, that's really ****ty. In other aspects - raw live show and ammo to make fun of them afterward.

Shit, man. I literally can't dis the old-school. Cuz "there aint no school like the old school, and Im the head-****in'-master!".
... alright. maybe the last part isn't true, but I learned on a fret-less Fender Jazz bass. How old-school can you get? Besides maybe learning stand-up?

Yeah, it's a classic. I wouldn't be surprised if one Gibson Grabber fetches a good 2 grand or so. The thing that sucks is that the only place you can buy 'em is Ebay, because they are no longer in circulation. BTW your buddie's bass was most likely a Ripper, which is like the twin. Gene Simmons played one.

good call. that's exactly it. either way his attitude towards the instrument pained me when i first met him. he was a diehard punk who adhered to the belief that you only needed the low E and the other 3 were just there to keep it in tune.

we worked him out of that attitude over the years haha.
