  1. I want a Black one but the car is slowly going tits up and getting in the way of any purchases in the near future Will the deteriorating situation at Gibson affect the availability in the future, or is Epiphone a stand alone company again these days?
  2. Clean, as in it's straight up sound, no effects.
  3. Any of you new vintage pro owners fancy uploading a nice clean sound clip or two?
  4. Guy Pratt - Inglourious Bassterd in Stroud

    Great player, but here he just proves that his surname is very apt!
  5. It'll have been new that year. Gibson never produced the Thunderbird again after 79 until 87.
  6. Hope you did and hope you liked them? Bass player on The Black album (Paul Gray) is also on the Eddie & The Hot Rods album
  7. UFO - Strangers In The Night. Eddie & The Hot Rods - Life On The Line. The Damned - The Black Album.
  8. Thank you, I thought that was what they were.
  9. I'll be having a Black one when they finally land, though t he sunburst looks better in your photo than it does in the official pics. What make are the Machine heads?
  10. Nice one mate, what great memory for you, bet his sound was a raw as hell then.
  11. Yeah, and sadly it appears to have sold, someone has been robbed!
  12. Yeah that doesn't surprise me, he and Mogg's working relationship was coming to it's end. Infact he'd left just before the U.S leg of the Lights Out tour the year before because of Mogg and he only returned because Pete Way had managed to locate him and talk him into it.
  13. It certainly is! UFO.....Nice! I saw them on the Lights Out (June '77 Newcastle Mayfair), Obsession (June '78 Newcastle Mayfair), Strangers In The Night (Dec '79 Middlesbrough Town Hall), The Wild, The Willing & The Innocent (Jan '81 Middlesbrough Town Hall), Walk On Water (Feb '98 Newcastle City Hall) and the Conspiracy of Stars (May 2015 Exeter Phoenix) tours!
  14. Look at that headstock! Squier infinity series at best. Messaged him and reported to ebay. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fender-jazz-bass-guitar/332491485097?hash=item4d6a096fa9:g:xGUAAOSwyGZaN7gn
