    Guy Pratt; but is that an actual “signature bass”? I though his was a Jazz.

    Thanks, this is an educational thread for me! For this next bassist, I had always wanted to try his signature bass, but I never knew what he even looked like till I looked it up for this thread. Who’s this?

    Well, it’s Betsy, the Bass his signature bass is based on. He says he tours with them instead of taking Betsy on the road but I couldn’t find a picture. There are videos out there though. His is a Fender jazz but His Signature bass is made by the Bass Centre, London. As are these two:

    Roscoe Beck. But is that his Fender? (I actually used to own one.) It looks slimmer than a Fender.

  19. I'm not positive but I think the 4string body is a bit slimmer, or cut slightly different.


    The pickups and bridge are RB.
