    Yeah, that's definately a flying V. Welcome to the world of Gibson guitars and basses. It's a wonderful place indeed.

    I think it's a medium scale bass too. I like the way they're all using Gibsons.
    Theres a british band called The Darkness who are really big over here at the moment,and they all use Gibsons too. The singer and guitarist use Les Pauls and the bassist uses the good ol' Thunderbird, of course.
     
  8. I would have payed more attention to Hoobasstank bassist's basses.. He has a couple of sweet looking MTDs right there.

    He uses the gibson live but when they recorded the album I'm pretty sure he used a P bass with a change of pickups.

    Now they got 2 :p


    Its a short scale or medium scale, i forget which. Bassicaly, its as much of a guitar as it is a bass. I read somewhere that when hee joined the band, he didnt play bass, he played guitar, but they needed a bassist so he started playing. Bassically he just pretends its a guitar and wails away. Even if the vids hes playing 4 string chords on it :rolleyes:
