    I know this might seem a bit odd but can any one tell the bass that Rick Danko from The Band is playing in the concert/film "The Last Waltz".

    Any help would be great as since seeing the film/concert I have fallen in love with it.
     
  2. Well, I know that for at least part of the movie he's playing a sunburst Gibson Ripper. For some reason I'm thinking he also played an Ampeg Scroll bass in it as well.

    Thanks for the information Zoomboy. I was talking about the sunburt bass.
     
  4. That would be the Ripper.
    And yes, he did play an Ampeg Scroll on one song.
    He also played an Ampeg electric upright on one song.
    Great film, great music.
