I should have a progress update next week as they just added the truss rod & routed the
control cavity... and I'll make sure everything's blue!!! ha!!

WOW! I'm really excited about this thing. When will they be put into production? How much will it cost? What woods are you going to use? What kind of trem?

God, I was thinking about buying my teacher's Warwick, but now I might not. This thing sounds awesome!

apart from the bad back (they sent me to a Japanese chiropractor..

most over the top crowds we've EVER played to..and we've been there before!
the EMG on the explorer was killer...and in Tokyo we got Marty Firiedman to get up & do 3 songs
with us.."for the future", "dont need your money" and "born to be wild"

What's dayglo, man? confused

I'm guessing it's a blue finish, but it sounds like a car freshener scent or a Simple Green ripoff Laughing

Very Happy hi - an update - Tony tells me inlays are in, fretting next & putting in the pickups - looks like we are going with
the October MM style pups..plus a precision style...I'll probably have it in rough shape to check out in a week or so
will update then!!
looking at new gear...anyone check out the line 6 PD xt bass or the new one, the x3??? theres also a seriously
high priced unit called the axe fx that looks like the holy grail....as the ultra version costs about $2500 it should be!
cheers, John

^ Wow. Its looking good! The back end kind of reminds me of an Ibanez Iceman. So the bottom horn will be longer than the top horn? Interesting look. I like it.

When are these going to hit the market?

The pic you posted has neither:

-Pickups
-Finish
-The trem
-Or any other hardware

And my GAS is already through the roof

God this is going to be a killer bass!

Yeah no joke, dude. If they start making something like this for average Joes like us, I might have to reevaluate my GAS situation. Laughing

OK! John hasn't been able to post this just yet, but here is a picture of his newest creation I got off of Facebook:



The trem is a custom creation, since the bass is an eight-string. I'm sure we'll get John to post on this soon once he gets the time to do so. Wink

Very Happy Hi!!!
been a while...been out and about doing a lot of the Euro festivals and having a blast...!
The 8 string saga continues...it was 99.9% ready - then a finish issue basically ruined the clear coat
and its had to be totally stripped & redone...ugh! then roll in the heat wave we are having & the October shop
a/c died...its a conspiracy!!!
so, for your entertainment..heres a youtube video ..part of a pilot reality show thing they were doing with October
where you get to hear me mangle the explorer...and I have a daft bit at the very end....enjoy!


other than that ...just got an Epi T-bird - silverburst w. chrome pickups.....anyone stick a kahler on one of these???
sounds like a plan!
cheers, John

and heres us at the gods of metal festival in Italy....

that thing was for sale about 2 years ago, I didn't have the cash so I told a friend who also collects Jackson stuff and he bought it... Smile
I was going to do that to my JacksonBird, but was always scared for reselling purposes if I ever needed to sell it..so my Tbird still has the 2440 fixed kahler on it.

but yep, you wanted to see a tbird with a kahler, and I knew I still had the pics around Smile

Very Happy Hi, yeah..its a tough call..but at then end of the day..screw it!!!
I'm gonna put either a Hipshot or a Kahler on....and I'm tempted to put a Jazz neck on..the T-bird neck is cool
but so, so fragile...one bang & the headstock is gone on these things...and I'm good
at banging my basses around...too good!
but that Jackson is sweeeeeeeet!!!

that p/j ia a 87 customshop build, the kahler was naturally added later.

mine is a 94 version when they used emg 35p4 and 35j in the square housings to change the look around but retain the singlecoil tone and came with the emg bass/treb preamp and not just tone.

they also reversed the fins to distinguish the USA from MIJ.

Awesome videos, John! Although I wish the camera wasn't so shaky in the video from Italy. Still, you guys totally rocked it! Viva Italia! Wink

And we're still really stoked about the show in Seattle that's coming up. The whole band will be there!

John's response after I oozed with praise:

Hi Eric,
It was fun doing that. I've never done a clinic-thing before..so I just talked about my basses and why I use such weird ****,
and played a bit. After they ran outta questions I said "ok..you asked for it..." and made 5 mins of noise...!

Cheers, John

Hey Eric you ever heard this?
John with Paul Di'Anno doing some Iron Maiden covers and some of Pauls originals



I'd say John more than gives Steve Harris a run for his money here!
Just ordered the album.

I'm waiting for my copy to come before I listen to the entire album.
Just checked out that one song on youtube.
So many of my early Maiden favorites.
Murders in the Rue Morgue, Wrathchild, Remember Tomorrow, Phantom of the Opera, Running Free.
Can't wait for it to come! Paul may have had a sorted pass (Sanctuary from the law, anyone?)
But he could really sing back in the day so him and John on back up vocals with his bass playing tossed in should make a good listen!

Found out something interesting, was asking on Oktober Guitar's facebook page. Otkober asked Kahler if they were interesting in making the 8 string bass trem for his signature bass.

John recently acquired what appears to be a Bach Musik bass trem, and he was kind enough to send me a video of him demoing:
