Phil Lynnot's bass?

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by Dave Bassincus, Dec 29, 2006.


  1. Saw BBC Crown Jewels last night with Thin Lizzy, and they were amazing. I thought Phil was using a P-Bass, but it turned out to be something with a MM-pup, relatively P-shaped w/ a big pickguard, neck looked mahogany and headstock looked like it went back at 17 degree angle. Any ideas/photo's?
    Sounded ultra-clangy, almost Lemmy-like.

    a little too much armadillo......

    that's an old Roland bass; it was built by Ibanez, with Roland electronics including an onboard MIDI controller. Not many of those were made; the idea didn't really work in practice. Phil replaced the guts (note the taped-over jack on the big pic above) and used it because it felt comfy to him.
