New bass headed my way...

I found this bass on CL and will be picking it up tomorrow, if all goes well... it is an Epiphone Rock Bass, Jazz pickups, white with black pickuard... not the newer batwing headstock but the older 80's-hair-band-glam-rock pointy headstock.

Looks just like the one in this eBay Listing only a lot cleaner and in much better shape. (And not as pricey...)

I'm getting it on a trade along with another guitar for one of my acoustic 6 strings.

Anyone got any first-hand info on these basses? I've done a bit of googling and found a little on them, but not much.

It's certainly a nice loking bass, and it seems to have fairly decent reviews. It reminds me alot of my first bass, an 80's Kramer... or was it a Hamer? It was something "-amer" anyways...

Pics to come...

Apparently no-one...that bass has been on ebay for several weeks... maybe more. They just keep relisting it at the same price over and over...

Didn't pick it up on the way to work tonight, it's been snowing and freezing at 10000 feet and I didn't think it would like spending the night in the truck... gonna get it Tuesday or Wednesday when I don't work.

Here is a picture of the actual bass though:

I like the black hardware.

Thanks b5pilot... I can't wait to give her a tryout.

I was thinking of custom fitting a tortoise pickguard but I don't think it would go well with the black hardware after looking at the pic of your new Jazz... possibly a red pearloid one? Maybe just leave it black, too. Red/tort over white has always been one of my favorite color schemes, though. We'll see what happens. Regardless, it is going to look real nice next to my Aerodyne...

 

I actually took tonight off of work too, so I might be able to go get it this evening and run it through some paces at rehearsal tomorrow night.

 

Picker... I'm trading an acoustic guitar that I never play and an old mic for the bass with case and some misc. accessories, and this:

A Japanese V from the early mid 80's... not really worth much I'm sure but I thought the kids would get a kick out of it, especially since the little one has his very own V, as seen in my avatar...

Trade value, probably around $275 all together, give or take a couple.

A red pearloid pickguard might look pretty cool! Even a white pearloid might do the trick. Yeah a tort might not look good. My jazz is more of a cream color so it works.

Lydian mode? The only mode I know has the words "pie ala" in front of it.
