The screenshots submitted by Scott with the message, “Here are a couple of pictures- not sure who the guitarist is (I think he has played with bowie- notsure)- anyway- the pics are from Jack bruce and friends. I think these were lifted from the old ROCKPALAST show- either the airing date or the show date was OCT 18 or 19th 1980. Venue was Grugahalle, Essen.”
The bass Carl is holding is 2-5-80, while he curly maple 6-string is 2-5-77. The fore-most 6-string is a padauk bass likely made in 1988 or 1989 (’80s_1′ on the 6-string page).
This entry in the photo gallery is also a placeholder for the left-handed 8-string bass.
