    What is the bass that Claypool is using on most of Rhinoplasty? He also uses it on Tommy The Cat. It definetly does not sound or look like a CT and I was curious because it had a great tone that I'm lookin for. Thanks in advance.

    you can see he's using the Fender on the pictures that come with the cd (at the computer)... also you can see it on the videoplasty... i dont know if the live versions where recorded witht that fender, but it sounds close enough.
  4. IF your talking the studio version of Tommy the Cat, then it's Les's Carl Thompson rainbow bass. It's a 6 string fretless with an EMG soapbar. Hope this helps

    Im sure he plays the live version of Tommy The Cat with the Fender. He also did so on Videoplasty.
