Bass ID game - Glasto edition


Recommended Posts

Watching Glasto on the tele with my family, I like to ID the basses for them (I know they really appreciate and the tutting is just for show).

 

This one had me stumped though.  What is this bass?

I saw a really nice long build thread on the fretboard forum about them when I was laid up with covid a couple of months back.

The maker seems really nice and happy to share the process.

I've no affiliation and could never afford one anyway, but some nice pics of the build process.

Always spot a few Kays catalogue type guitars on these weekends ,sound mans dream 

 

I do love that flat thud bass sound mind from some of the old semis and stuff 

Actually looking at the construction on the website and Instagram pages, the Trent looks very decent.  And that weird headstock instrument above has a flamed maple neck, so perhaps just not that familiar shape rather than Kay’s catalogue.

Michael League appears to have left his usual bass at home and had to use whatever the venue had lying around. Any ideas? (I fully expect to be told it's some mega-$$$ boutique bass now)

This appears to be a Bacci Amrita, and yes, doesn't look like they're cheap!

Just found this listing on Reverb for one of their baritone guitars,  £3800...

As has been mentioned above, it's a Bacci. To be precise, it's a Bacci Amrita LTD Animal Tonal, with a heavily reliced, alder body. 

 

Just listened to the Snarky Puppy set on iPlayer. Not really my thing and ML's tone seemed to all fundamental and not much else. However, for the type of thing SP do, it worked, it certainly stayed out of the way of all the other instruments.

Chambered by worms, according to the maker...ohhhh nooooo, now we have Toneworms?

So you’re getting even less wood than you pay for? Pffft!
