Just happened to read an interview with Tom Hamilton of Aerosmith:
"Most of the songs were done with a Fender Jazz bass, one of their relics, where the custom shop makes a really nice bass and then they beat it up and kind of make it look old. But it’s funny, we were out on tour and it was our last gig, we were up in Vancouver. Steven and I were walking around and hanging out, and we went into a music store with a couple of other friends that were with us. One of them was a bass player, so he and I were drooling all over this Fender they had in a glass case. I got a look at the price tag and said, you know, forget that, and I went upstairs to look at the computer recording stuff. When I came down, Steven had his American Express card out and he bought it for me. And the damn thing turned out to have an amazing sound."
I guess he likes them...
If we weren't all crazy, we would go insane...
