I saw this earlier in a news feed. I know Linnin posted the video for the Precision Bass history a while back, and here's the one for the Jazz Bass, to add to it, in case anyone is interested.

Did you watch the one that Linnin posted on the Precision Bass? It's the same guy that did that one. I guess this one just came out later. Either that, or the news feed I got it from found out about it late.

No, I didn't really care to see about the Precision.

Oh, OK. By the way, they featured the 1977 Jazz I had in the video. I remember the pearl block inlays, and the control knobs on it with the numbers. I do have pics of it, with me holding it when I was 16. I did post them here a long time ago. Youth long gone. :P I wish I had known stuff back then that I know now, that's for damned sure. :roll:

Well, oddly enough, I regret getting rid of other basses more. My Kawaii and my 50's Precision Reissue were two that were that. I liked them a lot more, but got rid of them for dumb reasons. :roll:

Felix always kept an EB-0 to the side, but never played it. EB-1 was his choice.

That's what I meant, the EB-1. I got them mixed up. :roll: That was a cool bass. 8)

Yes it was, and he played it so well. Felix kept the EB-0 on stage to the side in case he had an issue with the EB-1. Both Gibsons had the same tones. He had Gibson do a matching setup so both were identical. When he was who he was, Gibson, and Sunn dealt with him directly.

I was recently watching the 2005 Cream reunion and Jack Bruce was playing an EB-1 during that. I thought that was interesting, since he originally played an EB-0.

Jack played an EB-1 on occasion with West, Bruce, and Laing as well. Especially when they played a Mountain song or two.

You know, I wonder if that bass was originally Felix's? I was thinking about that before, because he did work with them and all of that. Probably not, but it could be a possibility.
