    The Monkees Plot 50th Anniversary Tour, New LP 'Good Times!'

    So with the news that The Monkees are getting back together and have a new LP coming out Sire thought it would be a good idea to put out a Peter Tork signature bass since they have great success with their Mucas Mueller bases. Sire heard of my work with Fendre on the Jerkweasle project so they naturally wanted to bring me on board with their r&d team to help design the perfect bass that highlights the skills and abilities Peter brings to the bass playing and what not. Just like with the Jerkweasle project I want to give the talkbase community the opportunity to give your opinions on what this bayss should have as it's essenceness. There is no other place like tawkbass to get opinions about basses and other stuff too. So anyways...... what kinds of feetsures do you ladies and jerkweasles think Sire should put into the Peter Tork signature bass?

    It should be shaped so it can double as a cane...

    I thought Peter had better things to do. Obviously Mickey has been trying to live
    the dream for 50 years. But without Mike and Davy it's not the real deal.
     
  8. I don't know about features but it should definitely be called the Torkweasle!

    Ya gotta use torx bit screws on the tort guard, T4 or T5 depending on number of strings. Or you could go with the T50 bit symbolizing the 50th anniversary.

    I wonder if scientists have discovered a way to make a hollow body entirely out of tort yet.... I know they have got many grants for the research but I haven't heard of any progress made.

    Since he didn't play bass on the records it should be a Carol Kaye signature bass.
