Pino bass in clips

Recommended Posts

Hi was watch some old videos on YT and I saw that Pino Palladino looks to be playing a fretless Stingray body with a Fender neck ? I have looked several times and theres only 4 string ( I see all machine heads up top not like MM with the 3 + 1 yes I knownif it was a 5 string it would be 4+1 you can see it 0:32 on this clip + others

Replacement neck from Status, maybe?

Could be right I looked him up and all it said was a 1976 fretless stingray I even thought it might have been a prototype MM stingray but then I found a video on a early stingray it had the usually 3+ 1 headstock but with p type pickups closer to the bridge like where stingray pickups are

That’s a hooky headstock a bit like Sandberg. In Tony Bacon’s book it says he wore out fingerboards on the Stingray and had it replaced.

Amazing - I've never seen that before.

His Stingray is a 79 which he bought in Mannys (New York). It appears on most of his work in that era - indeed he still uses it with some of the projects he works on.

As stated the board has been dealt with numerous times. I wonder whether this was an instance when the board was being fixed and he put a separate neck on - who knows but it's very interesting. 

He also had at least one additional back up Stingray fretless bass, one of which was fairly recently re-sold.

That does look like a Status type neck.

The back up recently sold, also a '79, was bought in the early 90s for use when his no1 was in for repair. Although it is a great bass, it didn't appear to have been used much. The bass in the video is not the backup.
