I don't think he is. He's always banging on about rickenbacker this and rickenbacker that.

I've never picked one up or tried one, although I've known people who have played them. I'm so stupid! I'm not such a gearhead bass player, anyway.

I have a cheap-o silvertone Fender knock off that I'm still playing. I should probably graduate now that I've gotten better, but I kinda like the thing. It's got a great, cheap "twang" sound that I'm getting used to.

If you find an extra, get me one, too!

I play a cheap Silvertone / Fender knock-off. I was really embarassed about it, but now I kinda like it. I've got a really cool custom pedal that was made locally that makes it sound really bad ass. And the cheap thing has a certain "twang" that I find endearing.

When I play a note and let it sustain, the last part of the note goes through this transformation that is kinda cool.

It kind of makes me feel like when I was little and my mom made me wear these polyester plaid pants to school and everyone made fun of me but I didn't really care.
