Thread: Nbd!

    Nbd!

    Interesting brochure page came up on the ‘Verb for not much $. It’ll look nice framed. Although, it would be worse than useless on the slopes. The headstock would dig in faster than you can say “Bode Miller.”

    (Okay, Grot, show your 20 copies of it. )

    Probably not, but if he wants one, I know where there is another one!

    Bassists on the back.

    MC-5 - Is the instrument to the far right a bass or guitar? Headstock could be a Guild but the body doesn't match anything I can remember. What is it? The one to the left of it could be a JetStar bass.

    Lovin' Spoonful - I presume the bass is in the back left. I'm guessing it is not a Guild and the star flare was was photo editing to obscure a competitor's logo.

    Are any of the above statements true or false when you have the actual paper and not just a photo?

    Thanks.

    What I can guarantee you is that that is not the notorious MC-5 in that photo although I can understand the resolution makes it difficult to read the name.
    Let's just say the MC-5's first release was in '69 and they didn't ever wear ties.
    Or have a cross-dressing member.

    I only bring it up because if it were MC-5 it'd be much easier to search for other images of the band that might reveal the instrument's identity.
    I thought it might be a mis-spelled We Five ("You were on My Mind"), because they did have a female singer, but can't find any images of that band using any Guilds.
    In any case I think they were temporarily defunct at the time that catalog was released and probably not a good promotional image any more.
    As near as I can tell, and logically, I think it must be " Hi-5" but I'll be darned if I remember any hit by a band of that name and absolutely nothing from the '60's comes back in a Google search or Wiki for that matter.
    And so once again there goes the potential for finding other images.
    I do see what you mean about the headstock at the rear, and it does look like it could have 4 tuning pegs but the round lower bout does belie any Jetstar/Polara-related model I can think of.
    I think it's only supposed to be the identifiable S-200 (block fretboard inlays), anyway.

    Do you think they'd do that and call attention to anything other than a Starfire bass?:

    Expanding the pic on Reverb (which I wasn’t able to copy) does focus things.
    It is “Hi-5”, and it does look like a T-Bird style headstock with 4 bass guitar tuners.
    The bass in the Spoonfuls is lost in a flash, but does look Chesterfield-y.

    Heres the listing so you can expand for yourselves.
