    I dont think he has ever played a bass that looked that nice.
    A single P pick up?

    How is that going to sound like this?

    I was surprised by that too.

    It looks pretty cool, but it just doesn't look "Mike Watt" to me. But I guess Watt's a better judge of that!

    I'd rock it, if I wasn't in love with the P I've already got.

    Well, he is getting old and if he can make some cash off of this I'm cool with it.
    I will not buy one, I'll stick with my Gibson.

    For years (Minutemen, fIREHOSE), Watt played a Tele-styled bass w/ PJ pickups.

    He's stated in the past that he gravitated to the EB-3's because of the more comfortable (to him) 30" scale.

    Sounds like he's possibly going for a "best of both worlds" scenario...

    COol pics. I still remember getting my first firehose, dag nasty, sonic youth, r.e.m., X records. It was like arriving in a new country. The Cure, Bad Brains, Replacements, Bauhaus--all that ****. It was like coming out of a cave & breathing air.

    Cool. I saw with the Stooges in September and he was playing a P. In October, saw him with the Missingmen and he had the Gibson.

    I really hope that's an affordable instrument. IMO, honestly, looks like it should cost $129 at Guitar Center and come with a 5 watt combo amp.

    Right now Watt's main bass is the Michael bass. It's a custom made EB style with a single P pick up.
