What has this guy done to this bass?

    Berry Oakley Jr. is his name... I'm not familiar with him, but I saw him over at bassstreet.com

    Anyways, I noticed there were some modifications done to his bass (check out the pups). Anyone know the specifics or any recordings where this bass was used so I can hear it in action?

    That's a Guild Starfire pup at the neck, the neck pup was moved between the bridge and bridge pup, and it has all kinds of tone and stuff. Berry Oakley Sr. was the bass player for the Allman Brothers, so I think any of their stuff should have this bass in it. All of this was in the Bass Street magazine (it's on the site, too, somewhere). Berry Jr. just had the Fender Custom Shop build another one of these, apparently.

    It was appraised at 60k.

    I remember reading that after his dad died, he was playing out with that bass and had no idea it was worth that much.
