  1. I saw him live in Pittsburgh and it was mind blowing. I’d love to try this guitar out.

    my P bass looks exactly like this but with grey nobs and the maple fretborad has sort of faded to yellow, and the paint has began to wear on the contours, but i think it looks gorgeous, but so does this

    I love Fender P basses. Roger Waters is a very special bassist, writer, artist, etc…I would love to have this one!

    I have a 1973 Amercian P bass and a 1995 MIM P bass. Both upgraded with Badass Bridges.

      I agree with you about Roger’s abilities and he is also a good singer and a very good guitarist in his own right – just listen to his playing of acoustic guitar on “If”, “Grantchester Meadows”, “San Tropez”, “Mother” and “Pigs on the Wing”. He is more multitalented than a lot of people think.
      I know that David Gilmour has made fun of Roger’s musical abilities and erroneously stated that he, not Roger, played bass on nearly all of Pink Floyd’s records, even to the early years, but in reality, Roger played nearly all of his own bass parts on Pink Floyd’s records and played all the bass parts himself on the first three albums, the live disc of “Ummagumma”, “Obscured by Clouds”, “Dark Side of the Moon” and “The Final Cut”, half of “The Wall”, every song on “Meddle” and “Wish You Were Here”, all but one song on “Atom Heart Mother” and one song on “Animals”.
