    John Paul Jones jazz bass or Paul McCartney's Hofner
  4. Being a lefty I'd have to go with Macca's Hofner.

    The p-bass Simon Gallup used at the 1981 Werchter Festival to play an extended version of "A Forest" for the express purpose of cheesing off Robert Palmer.

    I already own it, and have for over 25 years: my Rickenbacker 4002 (yes, "2," not "1" or "3")

    Got The Mothman, and that's famous enough for me.

  10. I think you mean infamous. Besides, no one owns The Mothman. The Mothman owns you!

    The Wal that Flea recorded most of Blood Sugar Sex Magik with (the 4-string tracks, anyway).


    There used to be a video on YouTube of Flea showing the basses at his house to someone at Bass Player Magazine, but it looks like it's been taken down. He gave a better look at the basses he doesn't take on the road and the Wal was one of them. I'll find that video somewhere.

    Wasn't the funk machine stolen at some point? Did it ever resurface?
