What Kinda Bass Is This?

There are two kinds of music, the good kind and the other kind. I like both.

I gonna go with highly modified or custom. The switch on the upper horn is odd. The chrome binding is too, Maybe even short scale or dinky body??? The tuners are modern. The control plate implies active....the knob configuration looks like a Warmoth routed body to me. Guessing here.


In other words I shouldn't be posting, I have no idea. :hid:

Another non definitive opinion; It might be a modified one of these:

In any case, I have never seen one quite like that with the plates. I might be a vol/vol/tone on the knobs and a switch up top for pickup selection.

My vote goes with a custom build.

I dig it!

Yeah I'd guess custom too. It's odd and unnecessarily complex which is understandable cause I think the band is French. I thought it looked pretty cool though and green would never be my first choice for a color. I really like the plate on the headstock.

I've really gotten a kick out of Aloe Blacc too. Never heard of him before but I guess he's pretty popular. Maybe more in Yurp than here? The way he looks and moves makes me think of an updated version of a young Marvin Gaye. That's a pretty good look in my book [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif]
