Also I believe he uses fender amplifiers if that helps at all.


Yes, he uses a Fender 800 Pro head and a Fender 8x10 cab (810 Pro), I believe.

1.4 - 2khz?

is it possible to that tone with a fender p-bass (w/ stock pups) and a backline gk 1/2 stack? and yeh i already use a pick

or could you suggest where i can get pickups similar to that?
#7
unless i'm mistaken he uses sd bassline quater pounders pickups
ummm 1mm dunlop tortex picks
and i was under the impression that these days he runs a mesa boogie amp not fender. i know he used to use a fender amp back in dookie but i thought he'd changed it around warning

and id say high bass mid amount of mid and mid to high treble

Buy both pickups. Rub icyhot on both of them. Sandwich your penis between them and walk to the nearest homeless shelter with your brand new icyhot penis sandwich.

Just $1k more. Signature basses are a joke.

Where the hell did you pull that number out of, your ass? The Mike Dirnt bass costs $699. Costs a lot more than it used to but it's nowhere near $1,000 more than a standard Precision bass.

The Antiquity 1. The '57 version.


thanks but..was that a guess?
#23
yeah a '59 pickup. oh and i would think that he would put a '60's in a 1969 because its a 60's bass.

equally if you have a load of money you could just go out and buy a Fender American Vintage 1957 RI....
Gear: 08 Fender MIA Jazz bass,
American Peavey Millenium Plus 4,
GK 1001RBII,
Mesa/Boogie RR215,
Schecter C-1 Classic.
