Been a fan of Stu Hamm since I first saw his "Pop, Slap and Tap" video, which had me sitting in front of a VCR for weeks. I got some of it, couldn't play a bit of it and totally failed at the tapping part. Of course, that video was done with a Kubicki Ex- Factor and while I've owned several of those basses, I've always favored a small, slim, sleek neck and that's exactly where this early Urge bass jumps into the picture. The neck on this bass reminds me of those early, lightning- fast Ibanez Soundgear basses and it's so easy on the left hand, it's almost effortless to play. The 9- bolt Kubicki electronics give you a great choice of tones and I love the second active setting- full lows with a nice, crisp high edge on top. I also thought that the first year for these Urge basses was 1992, but this one's dated in 1991, so maybe it's either a really early example or just a special, Plutonian prototype. In any event, it's a clean, original Urge bass that's absolutely ready for the stage or studio. You will notice that the back of the "G" tuner is gone, but that may be from someone playing an extended version of Freebird and the bass got so hot, the tuner back flew off. The original, two- tone hardshell case is in exceptionally clean condition- a rarity in itself and probably worth $150.00 if you wanted to just put the bass into a gigbag and take it to your next show. We're sure you expect no less from us and we beat both the bushes and the Pygmies to acquire the best guitars and basses to be found anywhere. This Urge bass is also backed by our world- famous, iron- clad 'Elk guarantee of satisfaction. Now folks, you can't beat that with a stick, so please call or email with any questions or requests- it's July and that means all of the 'Elk secretaries and operators will be wearing American flag bikinis and Jimmy Choo stilettos..."
