    Hey, I was just wondering, I was watching Blink 182's video.. and I couldn't help notice that Mark(Bassist) was using a Fender P-Bass, but has a Jazz Bass body??!?! Anyone know whats up with that? That body had to be a Jazz Bass body, but it had a Single P-Bass style pickup.. Maybe its a custom? Thanks

    You mean that ugly 'sea foam green'(as it was described somewhere) colored instrument? Must have surely been fender, no other brand has so ugly colors :cool:

    Ok, saw the video, the bass is blue :(
    It looked much like Peavey Milestone IV to me.
    But that geetar is still ugly fender!

    Peavey?? U sure.... it does look like a Fender Jazz Bass body with P-Bass pickups to me.. this is more recent songs that is... i've seen him use a Musicman Stingray also (Josie video) :)
     
  5. Ok, i'll let you in on his little secret...
    Its a fender custom shop bass. All it basicly is is a fender jazz bass with a p pickup and thats it. i guess he liked the neck of the j basses, but prefer'd the punch of a p. its pretty simple to figure it out if you look at it enough. i'd point you to an interveiw of what his guitar is, but i dont remember which mag. i read it in. but i'm positive its a fender Jazz with a P pickup and no j's, and only a volume knob.

    I thought Peavey is just the politically correct brand
    for that sortta stuff ;) Milestone IV is basicly a P copy.

    Mark plays a Fender Custom Shop Precision bass into 2 Ampeg SVT-3 etc.
    It's right on their web page.

    but i dont really think that he has much of an opinion. I've heard him say a buncha times that none of them can really sing, play their instruments, or take the music seriously....i think he just wanted something to play thats all really. oh yea hehe i think one of the ones he has is a red fender P deluxe with that gold pickguard (adams song i think.
