    Hiya, I'm new here so I'm not entirely sure if this will work so please bare with me. I've been trying to find out what bass guitar Paul Frazier, who plays for David Byrne plays. I have attempted to incorporate a picture by attaching a file but am not sure if it'll work. If it doesn't could you help me work out how to display it and if it does then i'd greatly appreciate a positive identification :hyper:

    Wow, thanks for the quick response! Hmmmm a Bossa OB-5 eh? I've never heard of them, is bossa the name of the company that makes them and what sort of price do they go for? I tried searching on google and didn't come up with an official website or anything, could someone point me in the right direction? :D

    They're in the $1000-2000 range. Pretty reasonable for what you get. Like a lot of Japanese basses, the electronics are kind of fiddly. Bass Exchange has a couple in stock.
