    Okay, I'm not sure if this belongs in basses or bassists, but here goes. Can anyone tell me what kind of bass Billy Gould was playing in the video for FNM's "Epic"? I think Derek Smalls (played by Harry Shearer) used one in This Is Spinal Tap. What kind of bass is it? What company makes it? Where the hell can I get one?

    Around that time, Billy was an Aria Pro Integra series endorser.
     
  5. Yes, it is an Aria. Billy dumped them when he dicovered Zon at the begining of the "Angel Dust" era.
    Before the Arias he used a Gibson ripper or grabber, but that was in the "Introduce Yourself" days.

    The Peavey that he used was his amps. Always those Peavey 810's.
