    Hi.

    I was wondering what bass (trademark) did Bernard Edwards (co-founder of CHIC) played. Especially the one that he played at his last concert in Budokan.

    Thank you all.
     
  2. All the vids I have seen he has had a trans gold stingray 4.

    Bernard sounded like Bernard on whatever he played. I know he had a BC Rich for a while, too.
     
  4. the cover photo of that album shows him playing a natural maple-neck stingray.

    he also used a Sadowsky bass (listed in the Chic-ism album notes).

    Early Stingray.As far as I can remember.I believe that to be why he sounded great on record(tone).I think I saw him in the freak-out video with a P-Bass.Anyone remember?
