Needs some clean-up work, re-stringing etc. but I'll be using her at some point in the near future. Saw all the Cheap trick Tours that came through Denver from '82 - '88 plus the Rockpalast Show in '83 when I was an exchange student in Germany. So, I've seen this bass a lot in person. Cool to own something that I thought was pretty bitchin' as a young lad.

Nope. Got it from a friend/ex-bandmate of his.

Very cool vid, but I think you need something bigger, like an EB-2 or something. You make that thing look like a toy guitar. :) :thumbsup:
