    In the 'hackers' movie there's a scene in some type of bar or something and the bass player is playing a really odd instrument. I've thought maybe it could be a conklin acoustic upright but I haven't seen the movie in a very long time. Any ideas what it is?

    Durable. It's better on a 4" Padded strap, but after 2 or 3 songs 20 Lbs gets heavy. Even on my 6'3"-250 Lbs frame.

    There was a bass in Hackers? All I remember is Angelina's mouth. Oh, and that it was about computers I think.
