The first 5-string in metal?? Probably… (Bass Tales Ep.3)

in Gear

Today we’re back with Episode 3 of our Bass Tales series featuring David Ellefson, legendary co-founder and bassist of iconic 'Big 4' thrash metal titans Megadeth.

In this week's video David invited us to his home in Arizona for a guided tour of his personal bass collection, including what we believe to be one of the first 5-string basses to ever be used in a metal band (and on a groundbreaking metal album). This bass couldn’t be more heavy metal if it tried.

As always, see you in the shed…
