what bass is being used in this video?
Looks like a butchered 4001v63 - modified to have a precision bass pickup. Yecch.
I love that video!!!
The bass is a Rickenbacker 4000 with a p-bass pickup. Probably a late 70s or 80s 4000. It has a set neck and it looks like a bad ass bridge replacement and schaller m4 or similar tuners.
The sounds and looks awesome.
Looks like a 4001v63 or 4000 but man- what a great jam!
Not a v63. The v63 would be neck through and not have the skunk stripe. Also a v63 would have walnut headwings.
even with the badass bridge and p bass pickup, it still sounds like a rick. i found out years ago (in the 70's), that even when you put fender pickups in a ricky, they still have the ricky sound. a few guys wanted me to install a jazz bass pickup in the bridge position of their 4001's, since it's reversible and when i did it on the first two, it really didn't change its tone much at all.
A lot of the tone is the maple body, the bubinga fretboard and the pickup position.
Is that... "Hoodley hoodley hoodley" or "Schweel hoodley schweel"???
either way, I sure did hear me some hoodleys goin' on...
