    Hi Justin

    This is your Pino CS refinished?



    Man, i LOVE the tone on this song!!
    I want to expand my collection of studio basses and i´ve been thinking in the Pino Palladino CS model. I know that is one of the best precision of CS but i´m afraid of a too much mellow and rounded tone... it´s also capable of chunky and agressive punk sounds like you show on this version of "The big come down"?

    Thanks!

    That's not a Pino CS. It's just an American P bass with different pickups and a few other mods. I destroyed it on tour (cracked the body in several places and broke the neck), so now it's just some parts. My Pino bass isn't the best one I have at aggressive stuff.

    Thanks Justin! Then, i guess a regular time machine Custom Shop model can deal better with aggressive tones.

    by the way, do you remember what pickups? Sounds really amazing... of course i know that is due to the spectacular playing more than any pick up ;-) But i´m curious about your pick up election.
     

  5. Did it malfunction and need to be punished? I've heard that is the NIN tradition with gear... :^)

    I think it was just a Quarter Pounder. No the poor bass didn't need to be punished, but it did need to get launched up to the truss then nose-dive back to earth in a simple, elegant demonstration of Newton's law of universal gravitation.

    Pensacola, FL.
    If my memory serves me correctly, Justin once stated it's a combination of a Depth Charge and a GT-2.
