What is this bass? - Byrds 1966

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by AndyPanda, Dec 23, 2016.

  1. Was watching the Byrds, 8 Miles High, and the P-Bass has a Gibson looking headstock - WT*?

    No big surprise that the camera is almost never on the bassist :( and to make it more annoying, they have spiral galaxy photos superimposed over the band most of the time but I was able to freeze these two shots to show what I mean:
    Byrds_Body_1. Byrds_Headstock.

  2. Google is a great thing :) I found a forum where someone went straight to the source and asked:
    I received a reply from Chris Hillman. He says:

    "I get asked asked this question quite a lot.
    I borrowed that Bass from somebody for that taping and I used it for that T.V. show and never saw it again. Who ever ownd the Bass must
    have had it customized in some weird way..."

    So, the mystery continues...
