‘Pretty On The Inside’ back painting by Hole’s then bass player, Jill Emery. From 1991.

“Courtney at the time asked me if I would like to do a painting for “Pretty on the inside”, I thought about the lyrics or my take, made the painting, brought it to rehearsal and I believe everyone liked it, so that was pretty cool for me.”
- Jill Emery, 2011.

This really is an awesome bass, nice low action and plays beautifully, the ebony board just makes playing the nice slim satin neck addictive. The electronics really do bring out that proper growl and low end you find in a lot of Stingray basses, but I’ve also played melodic solo’s on this and it just sings, right amount of treble control and right amount of bass. Simple.

Unfortunately however financial situations change and needs amust. This bass is in brand new condition apart from a slight dint on the top of the headstock (pictured) which is not at all noticeable. I’m open to trades. Please don’t hesitate to drop me an email and make me a cash offer.
