It's finally in my possession.  Pretty hefty tome! Had a quick flick through, then put it in a super-secure location lest the kid or dog get hold of it.  ::)

What a beautiful book.


I hope my never take out of the wrapping back-up also arrives soon.

I received mine a couple of weeks ago finally having ordered it on New Year's Eve for a bargain £16.64, really nicely done and what a gobsmacking collection of stuff, beautifully photographed.

Disappointed to see that the old teardrop bass that I saw him play in '77 isn't in there though, though I've just googled this and perhaps it's not surprising:

"It was very trendy for a while for Toronto bass players to have teardrop-shaped Precisions, It 's got a monster sound, but it's totally uncontrollable. I put a set of Jazz pickups on it, and it's wild; it's the loudest bass you'll ever hear - totally in your face. But I ruined it by cutting the horns off and painting it like a '57 Chevy in a fit of mental retardation! I hate when that happens: "Wouldn't it be cool if I did this?" Yeah, for about 5 minutes... I pulled it out the other day, and it looks so awful. It's baby blue and white-just a gross thing."

Well I like it.


Bernie Marsden has a similar book coming out soon, featuring his own gobsmacking guitar collection.

Who needs bog roll when you've got a bloody dirty great book on bass guitars? Probably be a bit like Izal though...
