  2. Chili,
    I believe a company called Trekker made a Louis Johnson bass, or worked we Louis on a design. But, Louis was ONE of the Cat's that made THAT Stingray tone famous! "Stomp", "Makes me wanna Wiggle"...

    Sho U right,

    His new bass is designed by Norton guitars. He also has a few more prototypes, one by Yamaha that has 80% of the lower body scooped out and it has two MM pickups in it. He also has one by Pensa Shur that has two Lane Poor J pickups close to the bridge and slanted like Thumb basses and it also has 80% of the lower body scooped out(this bass can be seen on the "Strawberry Letter 23, live in Oakland" DVD. I ordered mine from Barnes & Nobles. All of his basses Except for the Alembics, Trekkers and Nortons have J bass bodies. Louis also owns one of the few rare Spellbinder basses designed by Stanley Clarke. He has more signature models than any other bassist in exsistance.
