Gretsch G6136LSB White Falcon Bass, 2011

Gretsch G6136LSB White Falcon Bass, 2011

Here’s something unusual a Gretsch G6136LSB White Falcon Bass dating to November 2011. We rarely see these basses; they were not produced with the original 1950’s versions of the White Falcon, and first appeared around 2006 as a new model built for Gretsch at the Japan Terada plant (hence the JT at the start of the serial number). This plant builds many really excellent quality instruments.
The Gretsch G6136LSB White Falcon Bass uses a fully hollow, arched Maple laminate body with tone bar bracing, and a 34-inch scale Maple neck with bound Ebony fingerboard, and with the engraved gold-plated “THE WHITE FALCON” plaque on the Falcon-styled headstock. It’s a White Falcon, so of course all of the binding is Gold Sparkle.

SOLD! Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay Bass White, 2014

SOLD!  Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay Bass White, 2014

Built during 2014 and naturally in a gloss white finish this Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay Bass was the first instrument produced in 1976 by the then-new Music Man company, part owned by Leo Fender. The Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay Bass is a full scale length, 34 inch 4 string bass with an Ash body and bolt-on Maple neck; both Maple and Rosewood fingerboards, as with this example, are available. The StingRay features a single humbucking AlNiCo magnet pickup in the bridge position, and an active 3-band EQ running off a single 9-volt battery, accessible via a small door on the back. The short headstock is typical of the Music Man design – at least one tuner is shifted to the treble side to reduce the length of the head, and improve overall weight distribution and balance.

Baldwin Vibraslim Bass Semi-Hollow Sunburst, 1966

The Baldwin Vibraslim Bass was built between 1965 and 1970, but its first appearance was as a Burns model. Over time, the Baldwin label took prominence. This bass dates to around 1966 – the first Burns run had the controls mounted on the pickguard and had a more traditional tailpiece, which was replaced by the Rezo-Tube bridge.

SOLD!!! Gibson EB-0 Bass Refinished Natural, 1965

SOLD!!! Gibson EB-0 Bass Refinished Natural, 1965

It’s sometimes hard to remember that for a time, the Fender bass design wasn’t completely dominant and the Gibson EB-0 was on many hit records. During much of the 1960’s, Gibson’s EB models were used by players like Jack Bruce and Felix Pappilardi and delivered a huge, deep sound.
