Jerry Scheff's Tone

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by bachlover, Jan 5, 2014.

  1. Revisited LA Woman yesterday and was really impressed with the tone of Scheff's bass, especially on Hyacinth House. It sounds like a Precision to me. Anyone know?

    I'm pretty sure it was a P-Bass. I've seen pictures of Jerry in the studio with the Doors playing a P-Bass.

    I also believe its a P...played very tastefully :)
  4. Very distinctive sound! Never owned a P but I can dial it in on my RBV supposedly. It sounds very much like Scheff's sound on that album.
