    I would love to have been in the room when Levin first tried to describe the concept of the "funk fingers" and a three stringed bass to Big Poppa.

    Whatever photo I posted back in the Mesozoic was probably in my photobucket account, long since abandoned and password forgotten. Was it the one of TL's crispy bass hanging on the wall during the first EBMM Bash in SLO? I'm sure I still have that on a HD somewhere. Hoo, that bass did not smell good.

    can only find photos of it in its well done state. (There is a horrific one of a charred body, hanging by what’s left of the truss rod, is that the photo you mean?)

    That's it. It was in the Vault at Open House back in 2005.

    The only post fire photo is the magazine cover that I posted here earlier.
    The bass looks interesting in the fact it looks like the top is flat with white binding ? But it’s not the best of photos.

    I bet there was a lot of work that went into making it, one off three pole pup, three saddle bridge, neck and headstock, nut etc I’m guessing were all handmade one offs

    Thanks for photo.
    It looks standard four string size (anchor bolts are in the same position) but the rest is completely unique
