Great pic. Who dat ?
Tough call, but I'd say Steve Harris' West Ham Precision.
The Precision Bass that Bruce Thomas bought when he went on tour with the Attractions for Elvis Costello.
The ‘Salmon Pink’ Myth | Bruce Thomas
Quote: "When I bought the used Fender bass that I went on to use with the Attractions, it was in a sorry state — stripped back to the bare wood and fitted with a white pickguard. I bought a tortoiseshell replacement plate and then took the bass to Andy’s Guitar Shop in Denmark Street, in London, and asked him to respray it. I distinctly remember asking him to do it ‘Salmon Pink’ … a term I’ve always used for faded Fiesta Red. So, if I’ve unwittingly added to the myth of Salmon Pink, then good … because I’ve now made it the official colour of my new signature model Profile Bass."
Ronnie Lane’s handmade bass by Tony Zemaitis, used with The Faces around 1971 to 1973, when Lane quit the band making his last public appearance on June 4, 1973 at the Sundown Theatre in Edmonton, London. Both the man, and the bass are one of a kind. “Plonk” may you R.I.P.
And, lets be greedy, I really want his amps! I ran the same setup in the 70's, I WANT THEM BACK!!!
Those look like Acoustic bass amps?!@#$!? Had the pleasure of playing out of those in the early '70's. I liked 'em too, but went AMPEG soon after.
1. Leon Wilkeson's early Thunderbird
2. Phil Lesh's early Alembic.
I always wanted John Entwistle's black Fenderbird with the white pg and maple P neck.
What does the 68 stand for?
As a Carl Thompson freak, it is surprising to me that I wouldnt go after any of Les' famed instruments...but if I had to pick just one, it'd be Phil Lesh's tricked out Alembic...edit...I mean Phil Lesh's Starfire that was tricked out by Alembic.
Easy - Lemmy's Ric.
I don't think that you saw John Entwistle with an Alembic Explorer in 1968. Alembic only started producing basses in 1972.
12 pages and only 2 votes for P's of Steve Harris ownership. I'll make that 3. Heck even the Lado Unicorn would be bad ass!!
And I'd be able to continue playing on it, doubtless adding to its value...
Either one of Lemmy's Rics, or this:
...i agree 100%!!
I was only 15. He was awesome whatever he played. At 67 I'm probably romanticizing about the bass played.
Easy question. It would be the bass that I made famous. That would pretty much solve the implied problem, too...
Interesting? - despite lacking all the knobs and wiring, I think a stock Starfire with flats sounds not unlike the recordings of Jack Casady and Phil Lesh on the Alembic modded Starfires. !!
