    Everyone was great that he had on stage with him! But i have been looking and wondering if its the same bass player that plays on any of his albums?
     

  5. I really don't know, haven't checked out his albums yet. I plan on switching to DirecTv this month. Is the concert playing all month?

    I saw Botti live with Tony Levin on TL's B.L.U.E. tour (he's on the album, too) - simply amazing.

    Yep all month! He did a couple tunes with sting! Sounded great! He has a female drummer that is very good and the bass player is the ####! Hope ya get it soon enough to watch it! But keep in mind they might only show it on the weekends!
     
  7. He did sound great, but I'm pretty sure that wasn't a MusicMan he was playing, and I think it did have frets. I couldn't tell what kind of bass it was. It has a really MM look to it, so I thought it wasa Ray 5, at first, too, but it has a Fender-ish 4+1 headstock and two Jazz pups. Anybody know what he was playing?

    I agree i dont think it was a mm because the pick guard had a diff shape to it!
