Tommy Stinson – founding member of the seminal Replacements and current bassist for Guns N’ Roses and Soul Asylum – has donated a bass for online auction at eBay, with proceeds going to benefit the Hudson Valley community radio station WGXC 90.7-FM.
His autographed mid-’90s Fender Precision bass with EMG pickups is the bass that Stinson used during the past seven years while on tour with Guns N’ Roses. It was also used for all recordings on the 2008 Guns N’ Roses album, Chinese Democracy.
The bass is valued at $1,500. Bidding starts at $2,000, and the auction will end on Wednesday (September 26).
