    It just goes to show that the player counts as well!

    no one
  5. Its definitely a Squier and definitely a P-bass variant. I would know...I had the exact same bass for a couple months. Picked it up at a garage sale but got rid of it only a few months later because it was riddled with problems I simply wasn't willing to fix (especially since I bought it for a measly $50).

    It stood out to me because it was weird...like a P-bass/Jazz hybrid. Sadly, I wish it sounded as good as the one in OP's video. Must have some sort of mods.

    Seems like a good bit of 'verb in that sound.

    I think most are the mods are his hands. I despise slap because most of the people who do it, suck at it and shouldnt be doing it. This man is not in that group.
  8. Agreed; some mad skills.
  9. I always have to wonder what people mean when they say 'sound.' A couple of pieces of wood with steel strings stretched across them with two single coil pickups under them in the correct locations and attached to an appropriate amp of some sort will always 'sound' like a 'jazz bass.' Its not rocket science. Playing it well, on the other hand.........

    Agreed, I don't think there's much of a knock on the squire sound at all these days. I'm kinda feeling the VM jaguars, just haven't pulled the trigger yet.
  13. anybody else notice the guitarist is playing an epiphone sheraton with electrical tape over the "epiphone" logo?

    It's a Squier but is it stock? Pickups sound like EMG's.

    I've got an Epiphone Les Paul Custom with electrical tape over the Epiphone logo as well :) At least I think it's still on there.

    I bought it that way when I was in high school and never took it off. I probably should next time I have it out.

    Wow. Using electrical tape to cover up a brand name that was good enough for the Beatles. Just...wow.


    This Kenny Harris feller is a purdy good bass player! Didn't he also write some pretty well-known R&B hits in the 90s?
