    It is a Spector with PJ Bartolini pups.... His main basses are MTDs and Tobias, but he often use a '64 Jazz bass and a P one. He owns lots of different basses and use them according to the gig.... He has an endorsment with GHS, Super Steel.

    Hope this helps.

    Its a Spector. That video is great. Starts out manageable, but somewhere around the 7th lesson it gets too hard and by the end he is doing stuff that about .0000001% of bass players could ever do. And he makes it look SO EASY!

    That is some awesome tone right there!
  10. I have the VHS tape and it's good. I wish it was on DVD.

    +1 on it being a Spector bass with PJ pups

    I actually just wrote PJ @ Spector regarding this. Here's what he had to say:

    "hello -

    that's an older NS-2, with a Leo Quan bridge. we used these bridges
    before our Spector locking bridge which started around 1984.

    that bass has walnut body wings, oil finish, and dot markers, before
    our Spector inlays.

    I hope this info helps.

    Wow.. this thread is old.. ha. Funny.

    Great video. Awesome bass. Insane playing.

    Ha. Yeah, right?

    So, I've been watching this video a lot lately. I kept thinking that it was an NS-2 (and someone had already mentioned it as being an NS-2) but it looked a little different than the ones that I've seen and I had to know for sure. I guess the area that looked the most different to me was where the fingerboard meets the body. On the video it looks kind of flat there, like the fingerboard is parallel to the last fret (instead of being slightly rounded), but I guess it's just the camera angle.

    I had the same problem with a John Myung video I had. uTorrent and my CDR-W drive solved that. Now I don't have to continually trash my video just to watch it. :)
  15. Man!!!Back in the day,his VHS lessons was THE standard,by which all others were judged by.Seriously!I myself never purchased them.Instead,I purchased the Very USELESS,"Learn to Play Heavy Metal Bass,Featuring,Rudy Sarzo!!"on cassette.Which,in turn,I burned up the rewind motor in my tape player.WOW!!!Those were the days.Top notch technology.Boy,do I miss that.You young guys really missed the boat,when it came to cutting-edge technology.
