    I saw the bass player from Hit Explosion in Seattle last night and I couldn't make out his bass. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to talk to him after the show.

    The body looked somewhat like a danelectro DC bass with jazz style pickups that were slanted rather then perpendicular to the strings. The pickups also seemed to be set closer to the bridge than a jazz bass. The top of the body, where your forearm would rest had a chrome edge on it. The thin headstock looked somewhat like that of an old fender or a 'tele-bass'. He was using tapewounds on it.

    Does this ring some bells for anyone? If not, I'm guessing it's probably a custom job.
  2. Sounds an awful lot like a Reverend Rumblefish to me...

    Is this it?

  3. I agree, the banjo armrest is a major clue.
