Henry is a great under rated player.
That G&L 2000E He uses [u]is[/u] the bass i always wanted,
its a very early 2000E, i did try and get some info
from him about a year or two ago by sending him a message
via his site, never got a reply so dont think he uses it as its not been updated
at all, some live footage of him with paul weller here.

Wow!!
I seem to remember him talking a lot about playing " Heavy, heavy bass" on Rockschool.

When was Rockschool on TV?

this makes me feel very old, in 1989 essex county council ran a "rock school" weekend for young musicians, henry Thomas came and taught bass and deidre cartwright did the guitars, henry Thomas made all the bass players play a bit so he could assess us, he made some notes, I saw his notes later on and next to my name was "v.good" - that still makes me chuckle, then i got to play in deidre cartwrights band for the rest of the weekend, having been told I was "v.good" she handed me some sheet music, I pointed out I could not play a note, she said just jam on "g" and then go to "e" when I nod..... oh and I got to play henry's g & l bass, the first active high spec bass I had ever played at that time, it was amazing. in his way henry Thomas was probably as important as mark king in the early 80s to the british bass explosion

i found him very inspirational. At the time I was slowly realising that the six string was not for me and his bass was the first I really noticed.

That show was a real tv gold nugget to a wannabee musician. I remember Ian Paice on it and John Taylor fluffing a demo of Planet Earth.
