Alien Ant Farm Bassist's bass...

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Muttluk, Jun 16, 2001.


  1. Any one know what he uses? I saw them live yesterday, and noticed a 6 string bass, with an unusual headstock, which i've never seen before. It almost looked like a Carl Thompson head stock, but not. Also, the body shape wasnt crazy enough to be a Thompson. anyone konw what it was?

  3. In the video for "Movies" it looks like he is playing a Ken Smith 6 or 7. You never get a real good look at it, though.

    Yeah, its a Dave Parr bass, which I think he helped build. Cool looking bass.

    From what I saw in the video, its neckthru, pau ferro board, walnut or mohagany body (I think, i havent seen it in a while) and lane poor pickups. Good tone.
