    Why did your pic disappear uscyber?! I have a rockstar bass so I'll play.
    Andy Tanus of Black Oak Arkansas & Krokus fame owned my 75 Seagull
    bass from the start.

          Still looking for info on this one. 1988'ish N/T STIII. Has a few custom tweaks that always made me think it was used professionally. It was built 10 serial.numbers away from a guitar that was built for Jani Lane of Warrant. I also saw it flash in an 80's Hair band promo on VH1 Classic.

              Thanks Will. She's a little dinged up in person but shows well in pics.

              Loving the Lita 'lock and the Andy Seagul guys. Keep'em coming!

              I saw Black Oak Arkansas in about '77. I'd love to go back and see if he played that one. Outdoor venue, local bands Dusty and Coyote, then BOA, BTO, headliners were Pure Prarie League. A little too country for me overal but we went to see BTO and BOA. A storm kicked up as soon as BTO started and the show was cancelled before PPL even went on. A tornado passed over while still gridlocked in the parking lot, flipping a boat on the river and killing one man. Ahh the good old days.

                OH yeah Lita always had BCR on stage!!!! Andy? Not. He preferred his
                Rickenbacker - he couldn't stand the balance on the Seagull. He held on
                to it for a damn long time though & did do some recording with it only
                letting it go to a personal friend until I was fortunate enough to become
                the 3rd owner with an email of authenticity. BOA had Tommy Aldridge on
                drums back then. I thought that was as good as it gets for a long time ;-)

                  Yeah I got the hairlock (or Lita lock) because of old friendships and a lot of love for the work we all did back then. Lit a did not always use a BCR she played a LP quite a few times as well as others but Maurice will always be her guy. Thought it would be a novelty kind of thing as I am not a warlock guy (more of a Moser 6 , Bich type) but hell I gotta admit I have played a lot of locks in my day but hers has got to be the sweetest playing warlock I am yet to encounter. They built her a nice one! Was it her talent, her hair or that fancy pushup bra that got her a good one.

                    I've got Lynch's carved snake slinger from some vid (and mag cover) that Dan Lawrence did (and confirmed via email it was the only one he did), a couple stealths from Rick Derringer, and the ironbird bass Dave Ellefson played in one vid (they were in a chain linked fence). I killed my photobucket account a few years back but if there are any pics of those floating around feel free to post them.

                    Edit: I guess I don't really "have" the Lynch snake anymore as I gave it to my wife a while back as she thinks he's cute.

                    Edit 2: @Brock . . . LOVE BOA

                      Cool stuff Razz. I got a pic with Rick D at one of the NAMM shows. I didn't get to tell him but the farm
                      where I now live is less than 20 miles from where he grew up.

                        Razzledog...that was the Wake up Dead video. I always like that video because of the Ironbird since he usually used that Mockingbird as we all know before playing the Jacksons.

                          You are correct, sir. I just watched that video last night. I still have most of their vids on VHS. On a side note I used to talk to the guy that ownes one of his Mocks with the fighter plane graphics. I think someone at HHI told me they had made him 3 of those Mocks total.
