    More specifically it's a Guild M85 as seen HERE

    :) ... Kinda like a Gibson LP bass they have solid mahagony bodies
  5. Definitely a Guild. The bridge is a giveaway.

    I'm thinking the OP figured it out 14 years ago. ;)
  7. Yeah probably, but reviving a zombie thread has its own joy.

    Sheryl Crow played that bass recently at Farm Aid .
  10. She is smaller than I thought.
    The bass looked like a long scale.

    Yes, Sheryl is a small woman. She bought one of my Scroll Basses back in 2002. Last I knew, she still has it at home in her studio. I heard that she enjoys playing it in the studio, but won't take it out on stage. It's physically too big for her and looks silly. It's 35" scale, 48" long. I think she's around 5'1".
