Cliff Burton & David Ellefson new basses revealed at NAMM 2013

With a little help from my famous metal bassist friend David Ellefson (Megadeth), we headed over to the Aria Guitar section at NAMM to see the revealing of the Aria Pro II Cliff Burton Signature Bass. We didn't have much time since both of us had to get back upstairs to the Samson booth for David's autograph signing, but we had enough time to record a quick video and also get some photos of the bass and with Cliff's dad Ray. Cliff Burton was Metallica's bassist for their first three groundbreaking albums, Kill 'Em All, Ride The Lightning and Master of Puppets. Cliff died on September 26, 1986 in a tour bus accident (watch story here) but his legacy and style of playing bass live on even to this day. His famous bass solos featuring a Morley Wah pedal (along with a Big Muff Distortion) were inspirational to millions of Metallica and metal fans around the world (see solo video with original Aria bass).

Check out this video I recorded with David Ellefson introducing the new Aria Pro II Cliff Burton Signature Bass replica for the first time (view exclusive video here) at NAMM '13!

Now let's have Megadeth's bass man David Ellefson talk about his new Jackson Signature Kellybird coming out soon!
Check out the two videos below. This bass is so cool looking! I was lucky enough to have shot David live last year with his prototype.

Nice Tribute
Hey David, that's a really nice looking bass. But, also the one presented by Ray Burton, Cliff's father is cool too. And it's a great tribute to his sons legacy. Rock on!! \m/

Awesome show of it ;)
Hi man! First, sorry for my mistakes, I am Polish... Cliff's bass is more "old fashioned", but that simplicity of it is the best, FOR ME ;) Anyway, that 5 strings Kellybird Bass sounds simply great, I want to listen it more. Looks goodtoo, nice job with it ;) You said that you are going to Europe... visit us in Poland, please! ;)

Release date
Does anyone know when the kelly bird will be shipped out to dealers? I ordered one online but they said they haven't received any from the factory so I'm wondering if anyone knows when that day will come. I really wanna get to playing it!
