  3. Heh. It looks like a bug. I guess a beetle. You know, the ones with that shiny green/purpleish colour.

    Anyway, I'd consider it, but I'm not too big into six strings. Plus I don't have that kind of cash.

    I've heard rumors, one way or the other, or maybe both, that he used an Aria Pro SB-1000 or possibly an Ibanez Musician Bass (StingRay copy). I got this info a decade ago, before the internet was the sprawling thing it is now. I recently bought a Chinese-made Aria SB-404, and believe it or not, for $599.99 it's a good-sounding bass. At least it has the Aria name on it. Heck, I left my heart back in the '80's. The reissue of the SB-1000 is $2,399 - which is what an active neck-thru bass would go for; but I certainly can't afford it. To answer the initial thread, I'd say the '79 MM StingRay, fretless, that Pino Palladino made sing with Paul Young, Go West, Don Henley, Chris DeBurgh, and so many others he was a mercenary for. If you consider jazz, then the Smith/Jackson Contrabass as Patitucci burned on. Both are wonderful American original basses.

    If you're going to bump a nearly four-year old thread, you should post something that's remotely relative to the original post.
