Went and saw Lady Antebellum last night on their "We Own The Night" tour. Thompson Square opened up for them and Darius Rucker (Hootie!) was their special guest. The show was actually very enjoyable. Top notch sound from all bands. Thompson Square's bassist was rockin' a vintage sunburst/rosewood Fender P bass. Pretty sure it had flats on it. I could also see foam under the strings near the bridge. He was running through a Mesa 8x10 and head. Very loud. The tone was a bit thuddy to me when he would hit the low notes but the upper end stuff was killer. Thick and punchy. Darius Rucker's bassist was playing one of the new Fender American Deluxe Jazz V's. It was white with a black pg and a rosewood neck (blocks). I could only hear him when he was playing solo or with one other instrument. He seemed to get lost in the mix. He did not have an amp/cab visible on stage. Lady A's bassist started the show with what i'm 99% sure was a Fender Roscoe Beck Ver in sunburst. He would then switch to a white Sadowsky Jazz Ver. Both basses had a great tone to them. The Roscoe Beck seemed to have a little more "meat" to the tone if you will. But the Sadowsky absolutely KILLED...especially on their cover of Sweet Emotion. No amp on stage either. This is neither a pro Fender or anti Fender thread. Just thought it was interesting each bass player played one. I wish I could've heard Rucker's bassist more.
