Ibanez 4 String Acousitic Bass. Thankfully it has an active Fishman pickup, because acoustically, it is pretty soft.

Ok, I no longer have the Rickenbacker or the sunburst '74 Precision (sold both to fund a bicycle purchase). But I have all the others still. Left to Right: '00 Music Man Stingray; '01 Rickenbacker 4003; MIM Fender Active Deluxe Jazz V; Fender Squier Modified Vintage Fretless Jazz; '77 Fender Jazz (my baby!); '96 MIM Fender Jazz with flatwounds, "Vintage-ized" by me; '74 Fender Precision; late '60s/ early '70s Univox short-scale fretless; Danelectro Longhorn reissue. As I said, I have sold the '74 P-bass and the Ric, but I retrieved a MIM Precision (black w/ Tortoise pickguard) which had been on loan to my niece across the state when this picture was taken. So I currently have 8. I'd kind of like a good fretless 5 string someday, like a Warwick or another Stingray.

Nice! I've always wondered how those old Ampegs play and sound. I know Boz Burrell used one some in Bad Company, but I don't know which (if any) recordings he played it on.

08-05-2010, 03:26 PM
Well, Chris, the old Ampegs aren't that great. Bruce Johnson obtained the rights to the aesthetic design and hand makes these - and they play and sound amazing. They are hard to find these days and I'm not even sure if he still makes them, but if you ever see one and can afford it - buy it!

I put the covers on my '77 Jazz when I got it in '99, just to try them out. I ended up liking them, so they've been on ever since. I even put a pick-up cover on my 5-string Jazz. The bridge cover wouldn't fit, though. I really like the way they look, and they aren't in my way (too much!). I usually play between the end of the fingerboard and the front pick-up, so that works out well.

Sweet! I would LOVE a Hofner. When I was in college I passed on a '64 Hofner... for $450!!!! What was I thinking???????? Well, admittedly, at the time $450 was a lot of money for me. My dad was with me and said "You ought to put it on layaway". I said I didn't really need another bass. I guess I've been compensating for that ever since! I now have 8 basses (down from 10 at one point) and 14 ukes.

I haven't played one of the Icon series yet. The first time I played an old one, I was amazed at how LIGHT they are. It's so unlike a normal bass, both in weight and in feel. I read somewhere that McCartney said because of the short scale and narrow neck, you can't help but play bouncy little Beatles-esque lines on it. I sure found that to be true whenever I've messed with one. They pretty much only have one tone, but it is THE tone! Throw some flatwounds on it and play with a pick and you're all set! (Mind you, I don't play with a pick EVER, normally, but on a Hofner it just seems RIGHT somehow!)

The Icon is very light also. I have been told it is nearly the same spec's as the original to include sound. I do not play with a pick either and have tried to with the Icon-just doesn't feel right to me but I need to learn to use one.

Yeah, I much prefer my fingers, but I suppose there's a time and place when only a pick will do. Always good to be well-rounded! I used to play about 25% of the time with a pick, but anymore I can't make it through a whole song without ditching the pick and going back to my fingers... so I guess I ought to work on it too!

I played with a pick a bit back in my younger days when I wanted to be Chris Squire... well, THAT didn't work out! But yeah, I always feel more connected when I use my fingers too. Jerry Jemmott is a great player. I like George Porter Jr. too, but I'm even less accomplished with my thumb than I am with a pick! I try to do a little of everything though...

Probably best to post this here!

I'm primarily a bass player and my main bass is a 7 string from Sei Bass in London www.seibass.com

This pic was taken for the "Basses on the sofa" thread on the UK bass forum Basschat,co.uk

http://i62.photobucket.com/albums/h89/sevenstringbassist/MD5basses.jpg

L-R:
Conklin GT7 (which has been converted to fretless),
Jackson 'Kip Winger' (my old faithful bass from the early 90's!).
AC Guitars Recurve Singlecut 9 string (built in Moffat, Scotland www.acguitars.co.uk).
Sei Offset Flamboyant 7 string (my main bass, hence my username!)
James Tyler 4 string


I get asked why 7 strings and it was a gradual move over a lot of years! I started playing 4 strings and then went to a fretless 6 which I played exclusively for a few years. From there I got the Conklin 7 off of eBay and stayed there. The 9 is a small leap from there. The 7 and 9 are all strung in 4ths which does make getting around a lot easier than it seems. The necks seem huge, but they're pretty straightforward to play.

yeah, the Epi humbucker didn't sound all that good to me. I'm not sure if the DiMarzio is the best pickup for this bass, but it's better than the Epi.
I added the tailpiece so I could use 34" strings. I like the look, too. it fills in the bottom area nicely.

Also one of his smaller standup basses. Made in England
