    Does anyone know? It doesn't look like the Ibanez signature bass I've seen him using before.

    before the sigs, ibanez was making him custom sr 885's. the bridge pickup on his is farther away from the bridge than a stock 885 of its era.

    I think the kids call it "male pattern baldness". I've read he has like 200 baseball caps.

    That looks like a custom job before his GWB sig series.

    Ok, thanks guys. I saw a clip of the video on basslobster.com and really liked the way it sounds. If it had just been a sound clip, it could have fooled me into thinking it was Jaco playing.

    You should try out the the budget-version of the Willis signature. It's a very nice fretless, especially for the money.
