    I think its a Kay.
  3. This actual bass used in that film clip was actually up for auction on ebay a few years back..It's a 'Klira' ...Made right down the road from Hofner in Germany..If I remember correctly it was listed as a 59 or 60...

    Thanks. I'll follow up on those leads. I would like to cop that sound. James Burton isn't bad, either.

    Such a tragedy. Rick Nelson went down in that plane crash on NY eve back in the 80's. I heard the news during our Gig.
