Bobby Vega Shows Off His ’58 and ’71 P Bass Guitars

Bassist Bobby Vega has played with the likes of Sly Stone, Joan Baez, Cold Blood, Tower of Power, Etta James, Mickey Hart, Jefferson Starship, Bob Weir and Jerry Garcia—and that’s just to name a few.

As such, the San Francisco native has amassed quite a collection of instruments, and he recently showcased two of his favorites during a video interview with EMGpickupsTV.  In the clip below, Vega discusses his Three-Color Sunburst 1971 Precision Bass body with a 1968 Jazz Bass neck and his stunning 1958 Precision Bass with a Two-Tone Sunburst finish, and then demonstrates how they are both great traditional R&B tones by knocking out a few riffs.
