    I borrowed the CD/DVD of Phish's Undermind. Its not my favorite album by a long shot, but the video Specemins of Beauty is cool. Ok, Gordon plays a red semi hollowbody bass during a few tunes. What is it? Its a 4 string with humbuckers...looks like an MTD headstock(??). He describes it as having a round tone, which it does.....Any takers?

    I'm not a Phish fan but it sounds kinda like a Lakland semi-hollowbody to me. Michael Tobias helped with the design, which may explain the headstock. i could be wrong but that's my guess..

    Indeed, its the lakland semi hollow. Mike is the man!
     
  4. Mike is the man. I highly recommend the Deep End DVD. I pop it in every couple of months.
