    I believe the Boston album cover of “More than a feeling“ is a bass.
    When you’re looking at the bass bridge, it’s pretty obvious that it would be a bass.
    If you’re looking at the head stock and the tuners, they are a little bit on the small side but you only count 4 and it could be an artist rendition of a knock off type Ernie Ball Music Man bass.
    I’d like to know what your opinion is.

    I wouldn't expect the artist to be a musician, so I wouldn't look too closely at details.

    I see four strings, and what's close enough to a bass otherwise. :)

    On the head stock, there are 3 tuners on one-sided, and what appears to be a 4th on the part of the otherside you can see.

    Never mind in the mid 70s, most music fans didn't give a rat's !#$"%$# @$$ about the bass.

    This is too controversial.

    My guess is it's supposed to resemble a Les Paul...

    Oh stay and hang out. We're just about to start nit-picking about the Boston skyline rendering.

    This is the kinda stuff that divides a nation.
    I'm going neutral.

  12. Interestingly, the Highway to Hell itself is also a bass!

    Tread lightly… Tom Scholz is known to bring anyone and everyone to court over ANY issue. He kinda nutty.

    Fran only recorded two songs. Tom Scholz did most of the bass work himself.

    Bass is the Place. Basses in Space.

    Here's a basic concept: A Sun Ra tribute based on bass.

    It could be a tenor guitar or a single-course mandolin.
