    I am a semi-professional musician
    Does anybody know any female guitarists/bassists who have used Music Man or Ernie Ball equipment?
    I know St. Vincent (love her) has her own custom designed EBMM guitar. Willow Smith (who has recently forayed into music) has been known to use this guitar.

    I also remember the the liner notes of The Bangles Different Light album mention the members of the group used Music Man amps. I also think I remember the video for "Egyptian" used a Music Man Stingray Bass, played by Michael Micki Steele.

    Let me know by the end of the week. Pretty sure there's a picture online of Katy Perry playing a Music Man Stingray Bass...

    Gretchen Menn is a Silhouette player. Jennifer Young [Travis Larson Band] plays a Bongo and Sterling I think?

    These were the two that jumped out at me. Miss Dorsey is just a ridiculously good player AND singer. Why her solo career never amounted to anything I'll never know.

  11. Was going to say Jennifer Young (Travis Larson Band) but she's already been named, so I'll add Tomomi Ogawa (Scandal)

    She actually looks to be playing a Sabre in the video, not a StingRay.

    I believe that Stingray was/is used by Josephine Briggs with The Breeders, with Kim on vocals and guitar.

    Was extremely fortunate to be 4th row for this - Gail Ann Dorsey on a MM 5 string - and, as others have noted, great vocals:
