Gene's bass from the 1970's
Posted on 11/13/2013Gene's Charlie LoBue bass that he used from 1973-1977 has always inspired me. While not as high in the shock and awe department as his Axes, I have always felt his LoBue was the coolest among any bass he has ever rocked on stage. That being said, I built a replica. I had images auto cadded, and I went through many images to make sure I captured every detail of the 6th incarnation of this ever-evolving bass. I think I got rather close. Thank you Mr. Simmons and Mr. LoBue for the inspiration. This bass is such a joy to play!
