I don't know where I could post this...
You can laugh if you want, interesting sound.
The tonal complexity of flatwounds are greatly underrated.
I think they are flatwounds here.
Whatever they are the bass sounds great!
EDIT: I just checked the date of the film and it was 1979. I suspect a P-Bass withe dead rounds, but I would like to be proven wrong. Either that or a J-Bass with tapewounds.
...some of these Louis Johnson threads/videos-
He's thumpin' Flats on a P-bass.
Though I prefer rounds for slap, I use flats for a slap line on "Shaky Ground" because I don't feel like changing basses for one song mid-set. It works OK. I actually get a better response from slapping in front of the bridge pickup rather than the traditional end-of-fretboard node.
