    Can you ID the bass in this video? Elton Motello - Jet Boy Jet Girl
    Don't click on the link if you're easily offended.




    Here's the best image I can caputre. (the quality of the video is much better)

    I figure it's European-made, probably in the 1970's. This video I figure to be about 1978/79.

    Love this song! Plastic Bertrand's "Ca Plane Pour Moi" may be way more famous but Elton Motello's is the original and coolest version.

    Is Hayman associated with Wal in any way?

    It was made by one of the co-founders of Shergold, these companies were started at the same time as Wal in the same city but by different people.
    They obviously took inspiration from each other. Same shape and in further models, same principles for the pickups.
