My friend has a newer Acoustic amp and I guess they are nothing like the old ones.
sadly no, Guitar Center bought the brand name, theres no physical connection to the old company.
I have an Electromatic Junior Jet just like that. I don't play it as much since I got my VM Precision Bass, but it's a nice growly little bass. Looks like that's a Korean model. The newer Chinese ones I have seen have "Gretsch" big on the headstock with a small "Electromatic" and a plain TRC.
While not the old company, the new Acoustic USA is now making USA-made reissues of the old amps (that's what Flea is pictured with above). They describe themselves as the "Heritage Division" of Acoustic.

(the "new" stuff is at :: Acoustic - the pro's tone since 1967 ::)
yeah, the USA's just went into production, so I'm guessing it isn't the USA amps KR88s friend has if he says they aren't like the vintage models

My CYR custom built "Oakhurst" series:
What kind of pickups are those?
here's a new baby on the way...An all original one owner, bought new in the US in 1975..In pristine condition..A 1975 Matsumoku made Greco P Bass in what I believe is Inca silver..Has worn tapewounds all it's life..
Also my 1977 Fernandes Jazz bass...I love these old jap basses.
I'm a better bassist than guitarist, and have always been obsessed with Warwick's since before I even started playing bass, so I've invested a bit more into my basses than guitars. That being said, I love my basses (especially my Stage II, my all-time dream bass) and have no reason or desire to change them, so now I can start investing in guitars again!
Here they are, Warwick Streamer Stage II 4 string and Warwick Thumb 2007 LTD 'Flamin Blonde' (along with my Epi LP Trad Pro and PRS SE Custom 22)

Well so much for my not having any desire to change basses, but I traded my Warwick Thumb for this beauty: Musicman Bongo 5. The Thumb looked great and sounded amazing, but wasn't the most comfortable bass to play (way too neck heavy). So far, I'm really digging this bass and loving the tones it provides, and I still have my trusty SSII for my Warwick lust, so hopefully now I'm really set!
I own two Thunderbirds. Love the ever living crap out of them both.
I'm actually going to have a bass custom built for me. I've attached a mock up image of it. It's a Fenderbird build, modeled after John Entwistle's, but with some personal touches. It's basically a mahogany Thunderbird body with a Jazz Bass neck. It's gonna have reproduction '66 t-bird pickups in it, string covers, and a painted headstock.
very cool Xavier I'd love to get a "non reverse" Thunderbird like Entwistle used for a while, its too bad Epiphone doesn't make a version
Get a Bachbird. BACH BTH-2 TRD - B&CH Music
And Epiphone did make a version. I see them pop up on craigslist for $300 or so every once in a while.
This is my oldest bass. I really need to confirm, but I believe it's a 65.
But for day to day, my Sadowsky is the go to bass.
nice pair R_Z welcome to the forum
