    It might be a shot in the dark but can anyone identify what type of bass might have been used to record the theme song from M.A.S.H. (TV not movie)?

    That was probably the prolific uber-bassist Carol Kaye,
    You could contact her thru her website & ask ..

    I assume the TV M*A*S*H thing is CK.
    I have also seen Chuck Rainey's credits list M*A*S*H (I assume music from the movie).

    In any event, it's a Fender.

    I sat with her for a lesson before I left CA. It was a F
    ender but she also mentioned she liked to use a foam mute. Key to the sound perhaps (and a pick most likely)
