That’s what Philip Bynoe says he thinks people think he looks like while playing is uBass.

In an interview with Jon Liebman of For Bass Players Only, Bynoe explains that his uBass replaced an acoustic upright he was lugging around on tour with Steve Vai. He notes that it’s sound is comparable to an upright sand that it’s much easier and cheaper to transport on tour.

It’s a great instrument, he says, and I do use it when I need some upright type of thing and I don’t want to bring out an upright.
