Did not read thru, but mine would be John Pattituci’s custom Yamaha hollow body.
Jamerson's Funk machine.
This was my first thought also, and it's the first bass I heard and felt the desire to learn to play. For anyone not looking close enough, theres a strat pickup in the bridge where the mutes usually go.
And ACC 371s !!!
Reason I bought my first Ric.
Mine was burgundyglo w/checked binding.
Assuming that all the other basses mentioned would thus be spoken for, how about...
When Bernard died, I'm pretty sure he left it to John Taylor.
Ya beat me to it, brother.
Although, I’d probably fall into a deep depression trying to make it bark and cluck and jive like Bobby Vega and failing miserably.
Another vote for one of Macca's first two Hofners, but if I somehow acquired the first one that would open up a big ol' can o' worms.
Is that the Bill Black bass currently owned by Sir Paul?
Was that his Tune bass?
Mark Kings Princess Bass
I will go with Robert "Kool" Bell's Alembic Series I....And all the controls already set from him for me to play.
Bill played at least two and maybe more Kays during his stint with Presley, so it's hard to say. The one we believe to be his last one, which McCartney owns, is in gold paint, which apparently Bill did himself at some point.
If anyone has reliable information to add, I'd appreciate it. There's always more to learn.
Carol Kaye's Ibanez SRX700. Pity the SRX line was discontinued. I preferred the slightly girthier SRX neck profiles to the pencil-thin Soundgear ones.
Is there really any answer other than The Funk Machine?
I knew if I scanned a page or two is would show up.
And I would play the crap outa that thing even in my local dive bars.
The Shark forever!
The Funk Machine, where ever it is..........
If you found James Jamerson's bass, what would you do with it? Try to play it? Or sell it?
