Kyle Eastwood's bass

Recommended Posts

Don't know if we have many fans of Kyle, son of Clint on here, but I love his stuff!

Anyway this bass:




Apparently it's a Gibson custom shop job. No doubt hugely expensive... but, is a short / medium scale? It just doesn't look right to me!! What I mean is - I really like 32 scale basses and there aren't enough of them in the world.

Anyone got any more info on the instrument?

And it's a 34 inches scale, but a very rare instrument as it's not been officially released by Gibson.

 

That said Kyle Eastwood that we've seen quite a lot is a tall guy. 😉

If he’s as tall as his dad it could easily be 34”.😉

Strange he uses a lined Fretless despite being an upright player too?

It's the Bunny Brunel filiation. 😉

Some people just prefer lined fretless……. Bunny Brunel, Gary Willis, Kyle Eastwood, HazBeen …..

It would confuse me but then I’m easily confused

 

He’s a great bass player as is his band

As was the Carvin version.

I didn’t realise this until stumbling across this thread - I thought the Carvin was just a reworked LB75.

 

Brian Bomberg has done the same thing but with Peavey/Dean and now Keisel.

I've got a Carvin BB75, the one in my profile picture. Well actually it's a BB75 body with a Marleaux neck, but that's a whole other story. 

The bass that I will never, ever part with.

I saw Kyle a couple of years ago and the Green Gibson Bunny Brunel was not used. He had a very similar looking Red 5 string, so after the show when he was signing CDs I asked him. He told me it was time to pension off the Gibson and the new one had been custom made in London, but wouldn’t name the maker. However elsewhere on an album he credits the Bass Gallery so putting 2 & 2 together I think Martin Peterson May have made it for him. The black lined fretless he uses is also a Gibson. In some photos there’s tape over the logo but on others you can read it.
