    Hey?
    9 October 2019, but I've seen her play it before.
    What kinda bass is that?
    The musician's name is Hagar Ben-Ari.
    full disclosure: I may have an irrational fascination with her.

    Did a search and found this in an article about her on the Bass Player site, "Basses: ’77 Fender Precision with DiMarzio pickups and Badass bridge; ’69 Harmony; ’67 Fender Coronado Bass I; Elrick N.Y. Bass Boutique 5-string; Rust Guitars J-Series Bass; ’65 Epiphone Newport Bass."

    Hey thanks man but honestly I'm not sure any of those was what I saw last night.
    This was a Jaguar looking white bass (4 string) and I've seen its very distinctive headstock before but I cant place it..... its definitely a higher-end instrument.
    About a month or so ago, I saw here playing one of the new(er) Newark St series Starfire II's. I thought it was cool because I have a Starfire II as well.
    Anyway, last night was like a stylized Jaguar with a "Scallop/dish" cut into the face of the headstock.

    Searched again...I found her with this Elrick. Sorry, I couldn't find anything showing a Jaguar like bass.

    Hey thanks again. That's the bass she usually plays.
    Ya know, in retrospect this thread is probably a bad idea on my part.
    I did a terrible job of asking the initial question and, perhaps more importantly, she probably has access to a billion different guitars and the likelihood of seeing anything but her #1 more than once is small.
    But thats a great photo. And thanks for your research.

    I believe you may be right!
    jen-jm4.
    A guitar VERY similar to this.
    Note: This is not Hagar Ben-Ari. This musician's name is Jennifer Jo Oberle.

    Thanks for your assistance.

    Update! Update!
    She (Hagar Ben-Ari) was playing that bass again tonight.
    It's definitely Fano. Just like the one being held by Ms. OBerle above.
    I can finally get a good nights rest!

    You might be surprised. Most musicians in that sort of position are jobbing players like the rest of us (albeit with a great, steady gig that exposes them to plenty of fantastic opportunities) who aren't necessarily making mega $$$. They've got a budget too! On topic - she's a brilliant player and they're a fun house band, I always enjoy seeing them play.

    I'm an amateur hack ... a rank one, at that.
    (It's a personal journey for me.)
    But I'm in awe of anyone who can make a living playing music.
    ... And I dig that bass. lol.
