    I know I've seen early footage of a
    Precision
    Peavey T-40
    Some alembic
    A Yamaha (Bb?)w reverse pickups
    Jazz
    Read interview that said in the "early days"
    He also played Spector and Ken Lawrence.

    Any ideas speculations or the ability to listen and say
    "I don't know but it sounds like......"
    This is all pre Warwick so no need to mention that.
    I just love how his tone sounds like solid wood on this album.

    The yamaha bb is black w reverse p pickup
    Typing in "fishbone 1985" on you tube makes me think yamaha.
    What year did he get the alembic (please let it be the yamaha I have three kids and can't swing drooling over an alembic)

    I know one of y'all has his number, drop him a line and ask him.
    I guess imma do some Facebook stalking.

    On my copy of "When Problems Arise" he's got a P bass, looks to be white/maple but the pic is b&w.

    Of course, this might not be the bass he used to record, but...

    That's a really good article ! I saw them in the 80s when they toured with Living Colour and that was a smoking hot show.
