Does anyone know? Thanks.
I think its a Kay.
This actual bass used in that film clip was actually up for auction on ebay a few years back..It's a 'Klira' ...Made right down the road from Hofner in Germany..If I remember correctly it was listed as a 59 or 60...
Thanks. I'll follow up on those leads. I would like to cop that sound. James Burton isn't bad, either.
any suggestions on getting that sound ?
It's not a Klira but that's very close. It's a Framus 5/149 Star Bass. Bill Wyman used their 5/150 model which was the two pickup version during the mid 60's.
Framus' factory was also located in Bubenreuth as was Hofner's, Klira's and Pyramid's
Here's a link to Framus' Vintage site and this particular model.
Such a tragedy. Rick Nelson went down in that plane crash on NY eve back in the 80's. I heard the news during our Gig.
Thanks. I would like to dial in that sound, or something close.
