      There are probably a handful of session bassists that have been recorded as much.

          What I find incredible is Lee had a perfectly good '62 neck (one of the few years with the big D shape many players love) cut down to Jazz size...

              To my eye.... those look wider than any mandolin frets I've installed.

                Most recorded bass, not bassist.

                Lee Sklar rules. One of my favorite recordings with him is the session players album with "Sitting On The Dock of the Bay."

                  Well, bass. I think Tony Levin's P bass (and later Music Man) might qualify, too.

                    Has Tony Levin played the same bass on over 2000 albums?

                      I'd think easily.

                        I was unaware that he was such a prolific session player.

                        Edit- TL’s Wiki page says over 500 albums.

                            That's cool. I love stories like that.

                              What about that Jack Daniels bass that Michael Anthony used to have? I heard that Sting borrowed it for tracking Nothing Like the Sun.
