About as close to perfection as you can get.
Hmmm. Now this looks pretty familiar.
Fender is making Signature Series basses for U2’s bass player Adam Clayton. The Signature Jazz Bass and Signature Precision Bass will come in what the company calls “limited edition purple sparkle gloss.”
Recently we told you about Nik West’s first Signature California Series Solidbody uBass, the Purple Unicorn four string model. Well, now there’s a five string version as well.
And it’s a beauty. Similar in specs to the four string, except with an extra string (of course).
Not that we’re obsessed with Nik West and her purple uBass or anything (OK, we are. So sue us.)
Ms. West just uploaded a funky rendition of Prince’s “Kiss” using her new Signature uBass. She notes the song is played “clean” without any effects.
Here it is on YouTube for you to enjoy.
And while you’re at it, here’s the original Prince version, which by the way, doesn’t have an actual baseline.
Ubass endorsing artist, superb bassist, friend of this blog and all-around great person, Nik West, just dropped a new single.
If, after listening to the song, you say to yourself: “Hmm. That sounds a lot like Prince.” Well, that’s probably because Prince was a mentor to and a friend of Nik’s. And a big musical influence on her.
