60th Anniversary P Bass Notes & Trivia: 1962

Chief Motown “Funk Brothers” house bassist James Jamerson laid down nearly all of his pioneering, propulsive and hugely influential electric bass lines using a stock 1962 Precision Bass that he bought after his first Precision Bass (a gift from fellow bassist Horace “Chili” Ruth) was stolen. Jamerson referred to his ’62 Precision by what soulful nickname?

Update with Answer: The Funk Machine.
