G&L – Tom Hamilton’s Aerosmith, ASAT Bass, Blue (#33) – $9,777.00
We just received about 120 basses, guitars and amps from Tom Hamilton of Aerosmith. Tom is a founding member of Aerosmith. After 50 years in one of the hardest touring bands ever, he’s accumulated so much gear that’s he’s asked us to help put it in the hands of people who can dig in on it as much as he has. This gear has made rock and roll history on the world’s largest stages and most intense studio scrutiny. Now it’s your turn to take it, and make your own rock history.
From the Tom Hamilton Aerosmith Collection.
From the G+L Website. “Aerosmith’s Tom Hamilton has been playing G&L ASAT Basses for nearly twenty years since he bought his first blue metal flake ASAT Bass at 48th Street Custom Guitars in New York City. Since then, G&L has built several more ASAT Basses in a variety of finishes, but there’s something about G&L’s over-the-top metal flake finishes that keeps him coming back for more.
Aiden Mullen, Tom’s tech, had this to say: “The new bass built for Tom is fantastic, and he started tracking with it like twenty minutes after it arrived. Every G&L we get is excellent, and the new pickups are perfect.”
This bass was one of several ASATs that traveled with Tom’s touring rig. I’d consider it a back-up bass as I’ve been able to locate pics or video of Tom playing it live. It’s in excellent condition with no issues. It shows some minor signs of wear.
Hear’s a rare opportunity to own one of Tom Hamilton’s own Tom Hamilton signature model basses.
Serial Number: #Clf072704
