Name the bassist by the bass - difficulty level='basschat'

Recommended Posts

You lot should get these no trouble. Inspired by calls that the Reverb quiz ( https://reverb.com/uk/news/quiz-can-you-name-the-bassist-by-the-bass ) that's recently resurfaced is too easy and doesn't rely on the player's actual bass for identification, I threw this together with some shonky photoshop skills based on recognisable bass guitars as much as possible, failing that their playing style should give it away.

Insufferable bragging rights to the first person to get all 15, doubly so if you can name make/model for all the basses as well.

Yeah, of course. No sprinkles though.

Nowhere near as straightforward as the Reverb one, nice work !

Can't name them all, but here's what I can do.

#4 is Deb Goodge with a First Act Delgada Bass (think that's what it's called)

#5 is Geddy Lee with some flavour of Fender Jazz

#7 is Pino Palladino with his hat-laying fretless Stingray

#10 is Billy Sheehan with a two Yamaga Attutude basses that had an accident with some Araldite

#13 is Stu Hamm, most likely a Fender Urge

#14 is Jack Casady with one of his Epiohone signature basses.

#15 is Chrus Wolstenholm with a Status that suffered a similar fate as Mr. Sheehan's basses, but someone dropped a Gameboy on it when the glue was wet.

He can be a bit careless in that respect.

I would only have got Geddy Lee from that, nd more from his stance than the bass being played - plus the squiggle/logo thingy of course.

I got Geddy from his right hand shape 👍

Pino has a distinctive stance but Sheehan and Wolstenholme I got from the bass guitars.

CW has a Misa Kitara "glued" to the Status.

8, or less, many of those were pretty hard.

Without looking at the previous answers I'd have got 9 - players and their instruments.

However I'd only have got 5 if the photos had shown just the instruments and nothing else.

OK, I'm ready to start as soon as you post 4 multiple choice answers to each pic (of which 2 out of 4 are obviously wrong) !

I’d have got 11 people, 13 basses, although I would have had to double-check Mohina Day’s name (assuming it is her!). No idea who that is on the Modulus, is that really GAD on the Musicman? Couldn’t tell. No idea who that is on the Sandberg or the RD-alike, which is the bass I’m really not sure about.  Actually, don’t know what model Sandberg it is either without looking it up.

Ida Nielsen on the Sandberg. It's her signature model.
