  1. Epiphone EB-3. Cherry red. I sold it. I don't miss it. I didn't really know what I wanted from a bass at the time, I got it because it was kinda what Jack Bruce played. Very kinda as it turns out. Would be interesting to go back and see how it feels now that I know what's going on On the plus side, it put me down the Gibson side of life rather than the Fender way and gave me a taste for crown inlays, flower pots and 2+2 headstock, so it wasn't all bad.
  2. Big mistake by Epiphone not using the bat wing when they reissued the Embassy bass. The simple 2+2 they used put me right off. Academic now, as I think they've binned it
  3. Neither. Unless I now live in a world where they're the only two government approved types of basses, then Precision. Until then, I'll enjoy one of the freedoms I still have at the moment and play my T-bird
  4. Epiphone Jack Casady. Don't even need an amp if you're in a quiet place and CBA plugging it in
  5. Yup, plenty of songs to learn, plenty of songs to learn how to play better too
  6. Aw well, that's the next gig I was planning to attend cancelled...
  7. Presumably the old holes will be coverered by the replacement pickguard? If so, I wouldn't use filler, I'd use hardwood dowel of the appropriate diameter for the screw holes, glue them in and trim flush. I wouldn't trust filler when drilling new holes if the new holes are close to the old ones, drill might wander into the filler.
  8. Currently, 3. Has been as high as a dozen before.
  9. Another potentially jammy solution is to try the equivalent sized torx driver in there. Worked for me one time with a stripped hex - the points of the torx reached parts the hex key couldn't reach and turned it.
  10. Yup, still used today on Epiphone Jack Casady Signature and Allen Woody Rumblekat, also Gibson Thunderbird and SG. Yup, still pretty awful
  11. The three point bridge was introduced in 1973. Before that there was a two point bridge (1967-73). Before that there was the simple bar bridge which was referred to earlier in the thread. All genuine. The separate tailpiece is aftermarket, but not an awful thing to have. Keeps those silks/windings off your saddles Pretty sure the tugbar isn't factory issue either, I don't think they fitted them beyond the sixties. In any case, if it was a Gibson one it would have been slightly curved and a bit more dainty than the chunky, straight one fitted here. Neck pickup position is correct for a post 1972 EB-0, should be slightly less muddy there instead of jammed up at the end of the neck... Best of luck.
  12. Keep your mitts off of mine. Other than that, best of luck finding a good 'un.
  13. Might explain why I like Marmite then
