Billion Dollar Bass

Post by Daggers & Contracts » Sat May 29, 2021 11:35 pm

Hi Dr. D.
I've seen so many posts & photo's of the BDB that I must ask this question...
Do you still play gigs with it or is it used for Studio sessions?
Thanks, D & C

The airlines used to take special care of instruments, but in recent years, even heavy duty travel cases often get damaged. My bass was lost twice, and both times, I'm the one that found it, not the airline.
That's why I asked Fender to replicate the B$Bass for touring. Thanks to Master Craftsman Paul Waller of the Fender Custom Shop, the replica is a dead ringer for the original.
But for recording, I book a direct flight and take the original.
