My ‘67 Starfire is BA-764
How Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh’s Alembic ‘Mission Control’ pioneered the concept of the boutique bass | Guitar World

They had to mention Cornell then, didn't they? There are other shows beyond May 77, but yeah Phil is the undisputed master of the bass in that stinking little sweatpit called Barton Hall
Old news ...
Phil got fed up with Omega because he said it was constantly breaking down and was always in the shop, so he used Big Brown ('The Godfather') frequently as his backup until he switched back to Fender, among others.
Last night Omega got played onstage, along with Alembic #001, Yygdrasil, brought out by Rik Turner, at a Dark Star Orchestra show in Felton CA. I wasn't there, but some pics got posted on FB.
Actually, Yygdrasil was Jack's first modified Guild Starfire, not Alembic 001.
...and somewhere else on this Forum there is a thread where RT discusses restoring this Starfire after it was recovered after being stolen nearly 50 years ago.
*I think this may be the thread I'm remembering- Rick Turner on Jack Casady's bass (and amp)
Yeah, that's Jack bass pictured.above, that was returned after being stolen.
Someone on the Alembic FB page just said the bass is not called Yggdrasil (I even spelled it wrong), but that's what Jack was called, or something...

So what do you see in those squiggly lines?
Not strictly Phil but can't resist because

I watched a documentary on them- the group were combing the lots and actively recruiting at all of the shows- Targeting a certain type that they knew they could draw in -
I could see from a distance what they were doing and avoided them completely. There's a compound of those folks here in Boulder.
Phil is scheduled for 9 nights at the Capitol Theater in Port Chester NY for Halloween (Oct 11-31).
