Anyone know anything about the Busetto-cornered bass that Eugene played?
I believe it's currently listed for sale on the I.S.B. website.
Check out the "Basses for sale" section
If you have the patience to search in some talkbass posts you can find something. I think it was bought from a music instr. auction for about 25k some years ago. A well known bass merchant put it up for sale for a crazy price (like 75K) . No one was buying it for that price and i think it went down to 45K-50k. Now its for sale from a private seller on the ISB classifieds. On youtube there are many videos of E. Wright playing this bass with Dave Bruebeck. There is a really good version of a ballad (if i remember well Those foolish Things) where he plays a really nice melody and solo and you can hear well the bass. I have never played it but it should be a great sounding bass (and nice looking for sure). Hope this helps.
Massimo, I think this is the video:
Thanks guys. I was really wondering who the maker was. Haven't been able to track it down. I looked, but couldn't find that ad on ISB - maybe it was sold.
The ISB website seems to be down at the moment.
It's a Prescott and the first shot of the bass includes the fourth machine mechanism mounted on the tailpiece. The bass was originally a three string. "The Senator", seemed to have had it remounted to the peg box.
