    Watched the movie Secretariat the other day and in the scene where they are at the ball the night before the Bellmont stakes there is a band playing. The bass player is holding an insturment I have never seen before. Looks kind of like a wood Steinberger but it has a peg head on it and it is red. Has anyone else noticed this? Any idea what kind of bass it is??

    I found a youtube of the scene. Watch at about a second into the video and the bas player in on the right.

    What is that thing??

    That's it! Looks like a 2x4 with strings. Never seen a bass like it before.

  6. It looks kinda like this bass in a local shop near me. It's just the headstock, the neck/fretboard, and a pick up. That one looks to have an actual body though, but they might be related maybe? I don't know it's called, I never really had any interest in investigating it beyond looking at it from outside
