    Sorry, but it kind of made me giggle. Those of us who saw them on tour in 2007 know what I am talking about.

    I just saw him last night in Vegas - he did good. could not figure out what the hay kind of hybrid bass he was playing.
  4. I saw some clips recently and it looked he was strummin' like Danny Partridge. I can't tell if it was from the cheap clips, but it didn't look like the playing matched up.

    *He was playing a bass that was made from a beat up guitar body with a music man style pickup and a short scale bass neck on it. Sounded like he was playing through guitar amps too. Very nasty tone. Don't know what they were thinking.:rollno::scowl::rollno::(

    *Yes! It is on eBay right now. And, no I am not the seller. Just search for "tele bass" and I am sure you'll find it.:bassist:
