    Definitely not the Ric. I guessed Stingray, but I can see a Jazz, too.

    Sounds like a Jazz/Stingray with flats and the tone knob rolled off to me

    I dunno, could be a jazz or stringray.

    Either way, its pretty hilarious to hear country music getting sung with a Quebec accent.

    Of course, you probably find Texas accents pretty amusing.

    I voted Stingray, but I just realized that I had been listening to the best carrot for metal.

    Precision is the most popular bass for recording, so statistically that would be the best guess...

    We're just a cover band playing in locals festivals during summer. We don't really need exposure all around the world

    There is somedody hired to book the band and it's not me. I'm not part of the management.

    I just though it was funny to see the bass player bringing his brand new Thunderbird at the video shooting since he never had the chance to play it live or in studio before.

    This is just for fun! If you don't like it, click on another tread.

    I hear a jazz, probably with flats, tone down, mostly on neck pickup. 2nd is stingray.
