JT’s Acoustic Bass

November 16th, 2017

Hi John! I’m curious, do you own and or ever play an acoustic bass? What kind is it and do you play it often? Thanks for taking the time to read my question! Sarah

“Hi Sarah, I have one that Aria built for me in the early ’80s, it’s a real old warhorse, it’s been with me everywhere. I think.. think.. I may have used it on ‘Land’. I have two acoustic basses that Yamaha made around ’86. Beautiful creatures, one fretless, one fretted. That one appears on the ‘Decade’ cover (and in the ‘Come Undone’ video if I remember correctly).I always like to have an acoustic bass on hand, I actually have one in storage at our New York hotel. When we check in they send it to my room! John”
