Los Straitjackets

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by The Sound of the Police, Oct 14, 2001.


  1. Hey,
    I just saw Los Straitjackets last night featuring Big Sandy from Big Sandy and the Fly-Rite Boys. It was a really good show. They played for over two and a half hours and had three oncors. The reason I bring this up is that I had no idea what kind of bass the guy was playing and it sounded and looked pretty good. I tried all night to read the logo but never succeeded.
    The bass and guitars all match. They are sparkly with Fender-influenced bodies and exaggerated Fender type headstocks. The bass had a PBass style pickup. They looked like '60s Italian guitars. If anyone knows what these are, please tell me.

    Thanks.

    if these guys are th guys i'm thinkin of they were playin fenders. I once saw a fender ad with a band and they all had wrestling masks on and all the outfits matched and they're guitars matched. i thought it was los strightjackets. If so they are fender players.

  4. I would think it to be assumed that I know what a Fender looks like. They have played Fenders in the past when I have seen them, but these were definatly not Fenders.
