They're sporadic, or there's no *new* models - maybe some continuing ones or there's enough NOS floating around.

They're still on their website, they're just listed under gibson.com > Products > Electric Guitars > Bass. There are a couple of EBs listed under 2017.

Fender bass ? I have 4. plus a Ric 4001s and a Gibson EB-3.

A large pile of B/F fender amps and a smaller pile of Ampeg amps.

No shortage of gear here.

Looks like your "no shortage" gear condition is about to increase :0)

"I've always liked the Jack Cassidy bass."

Which I believe is an Epiphone model. Back in the day (the Airplane), he played a Guild bass quite a bit.

My band mate uses a Gibson SG bass most of the time. I love the way it sounds - looks cool too.

Funny thing... Gibson basses never caught on the way Fender and Ibanez have.
