    I don't know about the pic on that site, but I have seen him twice.. live within this past year and he was playing a 59 Precision bass thru a SVT setup...both times.

    According to an article I just read in either BP or BGW, he plays a p-bass with flatwounds thru an ampeg.
  5. Yeah, a very old P-Bass...

    Seen him with John Scofield.
    Got a chance to talk to him, nice guy.
    He used a 1965-P-bass with flats.

    Resurrecting an old thread--I have been digging a live bootleg of Andy w/Scofield at the Sierra Nevada Brewery in Chico, CA. Andy played supportive grooves all night and then stepped forward on "Boozer" with one of the tastiest, funkiest bass solos I have EVER heard.
  12. apparently he played for britney spears years ago/
