    He Was using Aria Basses and a pick back in the late 80's.
    He switched to Zon later on.

    Honestly, try a search on "Faith No More" or "Billy Gould": there's a thread on FNM and him at least twice a week. ;)
  4. New strings and alot of treble.
  5. I nail his tone with EMG PJs and Dean Markley Blue Steels.
