    anyone know what kinda bass their bass player uses?
  2. In the video for "in this diary" he was playing a 75 fender jazzbass reissue. I'm pretty sure that was what he was playing. I really like his tone.

    When I saw them playing the "Boys of Summer" the other night on Jimmy Kimmel he was playing a black Fender Jazz I beleive.

  4. Mike Davenport (The Ataris bassist) used to use a Musicman Stingray, but switched to a Fender Jazz soon before making "End is Forever", he now used a few different ones, a couple of re-issues, and couple of MIA's. Hope that helps man, such a good band!

    I really don't care much for the genre of music but I have to admit...the remake of "Boys of Summer" is really good. I am impressed by the way they did it.
