    interesting. quite a different bass compared to his alembic 6 string! wonder if this is a new go-to for him or if he's just switching it up temporarily for a change

    Was thinking maybe for Halloween he's being Jack Bruce?

    I can't imagine that he'd play that all that often if he has this to work with. My first bass was a Gibson EB2D. By the time it left me, it had Bartolini pickups and a badass bridge. I miss that bass.

    It appears that both your basses have been heavily "Alembicized". I love this type of thing but have concluded I would be a worse bass player than at other instruments.

    the red Gibson bass Phil is playing belongs to the bass player in Midnight North (his son's band that he was sitting in with)

    I have to say that that's a great picture of Phil playing that bass! I love it!
