Dusty Hills Reverse Tele!!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by FL Knifemaker, Feb 24, 2008.


  1. Did anyone see the NASCAR pre race show a little while ago?? Dusty was playing a COOOOOL black, reversed Tele style bass. Very custom looking and very COOOOOOL :cool:

    Anyone have any pics or info on it??
     
  2. I just found this pic. It looked just like this only in black. I think I wants to order the Warmoth parts to make me one :bassist:

    It's a custom for sure, it had right handed controls. Also, the pickups looked like the Guild humbuckers they used after ditching the bi-sonics. I think they're called Goldtone Humbuckers?

    last i knew he had custom basses made for him by a company called Bolin.

    don't know anything else, other than Bolin also does basses for Kathy Valentine of the Go-Go's.

    I have both songs they played saved on my Tivo in HD.
    Maybe I can pause it and shoot a pic.

    I noticed the pickups too. I have a set of those laying around that I took out of a D'Armond Starfire bass. I think I know what to do with them now.........
