unless he got a new one recently, he plays GMP Bass Guitars (though i was just informed recently that GMP is out of production... so we'll see who he changes to, if he does.)

he plays a 5 string bass (http://s25.photobucket.com/albums/c87/_takepictures_/Knotts2005/Skillet/?action=view&current=knotts_skillet_12.jpg&refPage=&imgAnch=imgAnch12).

Traben 5 String Pheonix
I will actually be getting mine probably next month.
Very nice bass, great sound, very affordable (about $600)

I like Modulus they are prolly the best out there right now. Kinda pricey but they sound amazing. Or Earnie Balls with dual pickups.

Yah, the chrome flame is a Traben Phoenix 5. I'm ordering mine this week (yay me) though mine will have the Seymour Duncan pickups. I'm also trying to see about getting a custom inlay made.

Nope, this is the black with chrome flame. The purple and green is a GMP which is no longer being made.

Yeah, I suppose that's true. But I never notice what forum it's in. I just scan the New Posts and peruse things that way.

And hey! Maybe it was a musical fish! ;D

OO! I like the crome flames one!

Yeah, you're the only one who thought that. I wanna bass soooooo badly! But I also want to lead worship for the youth so I would need a guitar...
I want this one http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h24/tearsfallingdown/retroh_wht_pop.jpg
or this bass http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h24/tearsfallingdown/elite_bass_crimson_pop.jpg
If I don't find a cooler cheaper one in the time it takes me to save the other two hindred dollars...

Okay, so having read through this and taken a look at Traben Basses, I am totally buying a Phoenix 5 w/ the seymour duncan pickups. Jon's bass tone is frickin awesome and those basses look great too!

So here is another question -- what does he use for amplification? I have been seriously looking at getting some Gallien-Krueger gear, but quite curious how he gets his sound.

A few years ago he used Trace Elliot. I reccomend Ampeg. Its road tough and sounds incredible.
