    I've been told that Peter Hook Played a Yamaha 4 string and and a Shergold six string bass in Joy Division. Does anybody know if said six string was a "true" six string (tuned in fourths) or a "baritone guitar" six string (i.e. Dano Tic-Tac bass)?
     
  2. It was (and still is) a Shergold Marathon tuned E A D G B E. It was a black one which I believe he still has. He also currently uses a white one live and his son Jack (who is the main bass player in his band The Light) uses a wine red one.

    Mine is white, had it new, since 1983 ish....
