#everybasshasastory These were the very first Jackson instruments Grover Jackson built for me and Dave. I broke this bass by throwing it up in the air after an encore in Miami at the kickoff show for the final “Peace Sells...” tour leg. After it was quickly repaired by Jackson and I used it to record the SFSGSW album a few months later. Last night, I was listening to SFSGSW and reminiscing on the feel and tone of this bass as I reviewed each song. It’s as if I was there again in the studio with each passing note of the songs. Many great memories for sure! This bass had such a smooth sound with a clear top end especially when played through my new bass amp configuration of the GK 800 RB head into Hartke 410 & 115 cabs. All my basses in those days were strung with Rotosound Swing Bass strings (which I often boiled as a teenager to keep them fresh when I was tight on money) and I used a 1.00 Jim Dunlop Tortex plectrum. I don’t know what happened to this bass other than I may have sold it during a massive Megadeth.com gear auction we hosted back in the late 1990s. Hopefully a fan has it safely tucked away, or is thrashing ‘til Megadeth! #megadeth35 #35yearsofmegadeth #jacksonguitarsofficial #hartke #jimdunlop

#everybasshasastory Thanks to the fans for finding these rare photos! This photo taken at The Cow Palace in 1992 on the CTE tour, was also part of a Dean Markley bass string photo shoot. This bass was the predecessor for my current Kelly Bird design. It had a traditional Thunderbird body style but with the Jackson headstock. There were only two made for me in the custom shop back in the day. I believe Ross Halfin took this shot. #35yearsofmegadeth #megadeth35 #countdowntoextinction #jacksonguitarsofficial

#everybasshasastory This was an interesting bass that quite honestly sounded too thin for my stage uses, so I took a few photos with it and then retired it. I needed another 5 string in 1992 for my CTE touring needs and this bass was created by Jackson from a Kip Winger signature four string bass he was using at the height of his career. I MAY have had this one repainted in the battleship gray color at one point. This image is from a cover story of a Japanese bass magazine in 1992 for the CTE tour. #megadeth35 #35yearsofmegadeth #jacksonguitarsofficial #hartke
