  17. Doesn't he play with a Ibanez of some sort?I saw it in the Ibanez mag that he was an endorsee.

    P-Nut, Dirklance, : Warwick Streamer
    Jack Bruce now uses: Thumb bass
    Stuart Zender: Warwick
    Jeff Ament: Hamer 8 string
    Paul D'Amour: Rickenbacker and others

  18. Well, he might now. But, in all live pictures, from 2000 and previous, Ive only seen him playing 4 string Fender Precis and Jazzes. It sounds like Fenders to me. But, Ill know for sure when the Warped Tour rolls round to Boston
