Poserboy's 12 string bass

Postby poserboy71 » Wed Aug 03, 2011 2:25 pm

I bought this from Eric Brittingham from Cinderella .

Image
In 1988 Eric Brittingham of the band Cinderella had this custom 12-string bass built for the "Long Cold Winter" tour.
Image
The body shape is the Blitz Bass design which was built by Hamer from 1982 to 1990.
The deep Burgundy Sparkle finish appears almost black from a distance. Set neck with no inlays.
OBL (Original Bill Lawrence) pickups were used.
Image
Eric's name is on the custom-shaped headstock, as is the large "arena" sized Hamer logo.

I had always wanted a 12 string bass. This one fell into my lap about 2 years ago. It is awesome and one of the reasons for my security system.

Woah! Mega bass!

Prefer Eric's "poofey hair" look though.

great bass,PB, very nice.
i'm sure it sounds great.

Huh, the fact that it has 12 strings has nothing to do with Cheap Trick, btw? ;)

Funny, I shave and I look 100 pounds heavier YET everyone is saying that I look ten years younger and keep asking if I've lost weight. Thank goodness I can still see my pecker past my belly. WTF ?
