This is the bass I used on Go Raise Hell Up In Heaven - Johnny Ciambotti always played a Precision bass and it just felt right to use this for the song that was a tribute to Johnny. Also used on Mitch’s Tune, for the lower range it allows.
Fender Squier VI 6 String Bass
Although nominally a bass, this type of instrument (the VI designation) was mostly used (back in the day) for “tick tack” bass - usually doubling bass lines with a very trebly sound with a lot of pick attack. It’s range is exactly an octave below a normal guitar. Also used for playing “baritone guitar” type lines. I employed it for some light low end line reinforcement in the yodeling section of Chicken Butt. Note that it even has a whammy or tremolo bar, something not normally seen on a bass.
Used on Lizard Rock ’n’ Roll Band, Love Is Gone, Could You Call It Love. Good all around bass guitar - thanks again, Leo Fender.
Line 6 Variax Bass
One of the big advantages of the Variax instruments is that they convincingly emulate a wide variety of real world instrument types and models. I used this instrument to get an acoustic upright bass sound on Monopoly.
