Paul Turner's basses

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Christian Houmann, Aug 22, 2007.

  1. I've been totally digging Paul Turner bassplaying the last few weeks and man he is great. I know he uses Alleva-Coppolo, Nordstrand and old Fenders. I saw a picture of his basses not long ago but now I can't find it. Any one have that picture?

    His Alleva-Coppolo sounds great on concert with jamiroquai I saw.

    totally awesome player, he also has a couple of Ernie Ball Stingrays... and digs the Aguilar DB750 by the looks of things.

    He uses a Nordstrad too???
    Didn't know that.

    Man, IMO, thats one of the coolest gigs around.
    One of my dream gigs.
    Them, Steely Dan and Bon Jovi:D

    j/k about the Bon Jovi!! But it would be cool to play those tunes in a sold out arena!!!

    I think Bon Jovi has great bass lines. I love the "Living on a prayer" chorus bass line!

    Oh hell yeah!!!!

    But cranking out "Little L", "Love Foolosophy", "Canned Heat" or "Scam" would be sweet as all get out!

    What is that unit on top the DB750. Looks like all the 750's knobs are on zero... can't see that good

    There's a thread on this somewhere... it's some sort of pre/DI... has 'cooker' or something in the name. Can't quite remember.

    He used to use that Nordy but it was up for sale in The Gallery, London a couple of months back. The pickups were "borrowed" for my new Sei Jazz bass because of the delays from Nordstrand at the time. So my Sei Jazz has Paul Turner's Big Single pickups in it ... :hyper:
