    My two main basses are a P that I recently changed to a P/J with Aguilars, and a Fender Musicmaster that I put a Mike Lull tbird pickup in the P position. With these I can get a huge range of tones, but the sound you get in this video is a very elusive one for me that I just can't dial in. Curious as to what it is!

    Also, I love your dancing.

    Oh man, that's beautiful.

    I'm pretty sure I've gotten that bass as an answer to a question before... Hopefully it wasn't to the same video and I had forgotten...

    There are a couple of vintage non-fancy wood ones on eBay between $1,500- $3,000. I was actually expecting them to be a little more.

    Yeah that's my late '66 Coronado II Wildwood.
