    Nope that's a Tony Zemaitis bass, you can tell from the slanted pickup and the hardcarved pcikup surrounds and from the tell tale bridge and pots.

    Here's a similar bass.

    He also played a Les Paul Bass in the early 90's, but I can't seem to find any online pictures or ads of him with it.
     
  9. Close, that's an EB-3, you can kinda see the smaller bridge pup under his hand, that guy has an awesome stage presence. And that bass is all up ons my GAS list!
     
  10. i believe he had one when they did sweet emotion on SNL...i'll try to find some pics!
    it'll be hard because the aeorsmith guitarist and bassist seem to have a new instrument just about every day!

    Late 60's ('65-69) Thunderbird IV, also known as "non-reverse" Thunderbird. http://www.gibsonbass.com/thunderbird66.php

    Entwistle and Glenn Cornick played non-reverses too. Squire used it only on couple of songs.
