    I'm not famous, but I am professional. I've gigged fairly frequently with a Harmony brand Precision Bass copy that was apparently initially available out of a Sears catalog. I bought it used in 1995 for $40. Not an easier-playing bass exists on the planet.

    I've found the amp is a bigger equasian then the guitar . A Good amp makes even the cheapest guitar within reason sound good. and Taking the time to set up a cheap really set it can make most guitars giggable. I think it's cool Jack Pearson chose to buck the trend and play a really cheap guitar and make it sound great ! Of course it's the player !

    Most of the professional guitar players play inexpensive instruments ;)

    Someone probably told him it was a custom shop model.

    Those aren't necessarily cheap!
