Not too often. Every now and then I'll take it off the wall to play a little Night Goat or Eye Flies. Even though it's easily the most banged up instrument I've ever owned (still plays great though) I'm afraid to use it too much, I want all the dents and dings to remain Kevin's. I made myself a replica of sorts, with a Jazz body with a P-neck, brass nut, those same G&L single coil pickups, and wiring that is copied exactly like Kevin's. I play that one more often. I've had it for a year and a half now, I still can't believe I have it. Plug it in and it's just nasty in the most amazing way.

That’s too cool.  Did you buy that on EBay? 

Kevin sold a Beta preamp on there a few years ago.

He posted on Instagram that he was selling it and I sent him a message.

Dumpster D, no low ball required, his asking price was reasonable.
It was made by Eric Chaz. I believe it was made in 2000 or 2001. I know he had it made shortly after joining the Melvins. The green one was made by Chaz too, in 2003ish. This one originally had a split P-bass pickup in the bridge position and a Fender style jazz pickup in the neck position. A few years later he switched them out for the G&L single coils, like in his old Cows SB-2.

When I do throw it over my shoulder it is difficult to resist swiveling around. I usually do.  :lol:

I was kidding about the Low balling.  :)

So awesome, wow.  Special Request...can you post a shot of the wiring of your bass for me?

And brass nut? where'd you get that?!?! how does that feel and sound? I think raunchy...very raunch.



I Just brought a late 70's P-bass back from the dead, minus the fret dressing it desperately needs, I wired it myself and found that a fun Job, It's pretty solid, one of the heftier Maple neck guitars I've ever played, the split single is pretty good, what sort of tone does the two single G&L pickups give?

Have you ever asked Kevin about his actual intonation and general Setup?

I'd like to know, I saw like a foot switch or something taped on his green horn bass, do you know what that's for?

Anyway I've always loved and wanted that bass, so..congrats on being the proud owner of that thing!!! I have an old Ludwig Jazz kit with double kicks you'd love to see, that bass would go along perfect with a gold sparkle Drum kit!!!  8) 8) 8)


PS....Lock-ins???!?!??  [-X


my friend, get some of these instead :
