    Second time I've seen her live. First time was in the mid 90s.

    Her band was excellent. She played the same bass as in this video. Looks like a Lakland? I know she's played Fender, Celinder and Gibsons - not sure what this one is. Her rig at the show was all Ampeg.

  2. That is a Reverend bass! One of the new, MIK ones. Very cool to see her playing a Rev.

    Love the intro! I haven't been as big on Me'shell's more recent stuff but that was fun. Thanks for the link.

    I saw her live in '07at the last NYC Bassplayer Live after concert. She had a fender J and was just as funky as she always was. Great stuff!

    Bumpin cause I always dig Meshell, her playing, writing and musicians she keeps around. I do have a bit of a nerdy question...

    Always regarded her as a flatwound player (on her jazz bass) but the Reverend in the vid sounds & looks like rounds and w/ rather light tension (some of the bending). Sounds great & like her sound but jut curious...

    BTW thanks for the link to the full performance!!
