    I've saw/heard this bass live at the last Wilco concert I attended. It looked/sounded beautiful, but I have never seen one before. Who makes it, and where can I get one?!

    Here's the link to the picture:

    John Stirratt is the bass player... great player and singer, and a lot of fun to watch on stage.

    Thanks!

    It looks like some kind of Hofner (a la McCartney). I couldn't tell you the exact model though...

    Edit: I think that it's the Hofner 500/2 upon reviewing Hofner's site.

    It looks like a Hofner Club bass to me, but I am often wrong. More of a guess really.......

    As a wild guess. I would say perhaps a Framus ?

    That is a Hofner 500/2 "Club Bass" Re-Issue.
