    NEVER saw before
    I know Billy had a 58 V, can be heard on the liveside of the Fandango album
    ......but never saw Dusty with a V-bass, anyone more information 'bout THAT bass?

    ENJOY!!!

    I believe that's a modified EB3.
    The Flying V Bass didn't debut until 1981.

    That would probably be the quietest ZZ top concert ever. Not even plugged in ;)

    I would have enjoyed my prom a lot more with that kind of music. We got a KC & the Band knockoff.

    Probably from a TV show where they lip synced it.
    I used to love seeing a EV 635 with a wire out the XLR as if it was wireless.
