    Back when seminal New Wave Of British Heavy Metal band Witchfinder General were recording their first album, they didn't have a regular bassist. It turns out that the guitarist and primary song writer Phil Cope learned to play guitar by first playing bass in a country and western band called The Jays.This is the bass he played.

    Phil Cope merely made up a fake name Wolfy Trope for the album cover credits and asked their one and only roadie to pose on the album cover with them to complete the illusion of there being a fourth member. And thus legends are born.

    So here's your only chance to own a killer piece of doom metal and NWOBHM history.

    Sincerely Liam Hayes from www.WitchfinderGeneral.net

    Open to offers and trades. This is a 24.5" scale bass. Very guitar like in feel and string spacing, but with a real deep bassy sound.

    Such a great band, with a great story. It was all a mystery until I built the website and some friends of the band introduced us.

    How do I add a listing photo to this listing, like all the rest? And why does my as not show up when I look at the Classifieds section? I just posted it last night, and it doesn't show up at all.
