    I've always been curious about what kind of fretless bass Andy Metcalfe from Robyn Hitchcock's Egyptians plays. Anyone out there have any idea?

    Thanks!
     
  2. When I saw the Soft Boys he had a Precision I think. I might have been a Jazz but I'm 90% sure it was a P-Bass. Definately Fender though. I seem to recall reading somewhere that it's the same one he bought way back when the Soft Boys had their first go around. Fantastic player BTW. I wonder how he is as a lawyer?

    "One Long Pair of Eyes" was one of the songs that was directly responsible for me wanting to take up fretless bass... tasteful and evocative.
