    Anyone know what kind of bass Sting is using is the picture on Salon's home page today?

    Well I'd say that's his early 50's Fender Precision or a Fender Custom Shop designed to look like his early 50's Precision. I think the original is a '54 but I'm not sure. He rescued it from a storage closet in some old orphanage. There was an article about it in Bass Player earlier this year.

    Iowa's a 1954 Precision. Fender also made him an exact duplucate of that bass. So, who which one he is using, at any given time. :)
