So after "the last bass I'll ever need".... [UPDATE]

Recommended Posts

There's this*:

 

I waited too long to order the Sunburst. Now out of stock so I ordered the "blackie"

* a Squier will suffice as I may not play this one every time I record. A new Fender Custom Shop Bass VI is 10 times, yes I said 10 times, the cost.

Fender's gotta pay for that Presonus acquisition somehow and have surely noted that a certain bass player seem to have plenty to spend on plugins.

Everybody needs one of those, even if you just think you don't:  simple enough.

at approx half Squier money, this guy with Roswell (UK) Alnico 5 pickups, maple neck, graphite nut and Diaddario strings

normally would be simular quality level to Squier.

So now I get a signed Bapu plectrum maybe ?

No chance.

He needs them all to play 57 basses simultaneously.

I bought a big box of car tyre balancing weights to glue into control cavities of my cheap guitars.

that way they shouldn't feel so light and cheap anymore.

I'm mad I know

Cool, you can sound like John Lennon playing bass on Long and Winding Road.

There is also speculation that he played the same bass on While My Guitar Gently Weeps too.

I think that was George, doubling the part on guitar an octave higher.  The phrasing of the two are identical and it's his song anyway.

Just saw a vid on utoob that said John played one of these or something similar on While My Guitar Gently Weeps. It does have a very non-Paul style bass line in it imo.
