I sent Greg my “want list” for anything Woodstock related item (since I was there.) Several months later, he came up with Stu Cook’s (CCR) stage played Woodstock bass, which is shown on Greg’s website. This deal took many months to finalize since I kept coming up with questions and requests, and the artist was always on the road touring. But Greg stuck with me during all this. Being skeptical, I was very satisfied with the three pages LOA from the artist and with a photograph of Stu playing at Woodstock, which Greg matched to the grain of the bass I bought. Finally, he helped arrange for me and my wife to go backstage and meet the artist. Wow! I’m hoping Greg finds more stuff for me.
Pictured here is Stu with his 1968 Fender Precision bass. This was Stu’s main CCR bass on LPs 3 thru 7, (Willy and the Poor Boys, Cosmo’s Factory, Pendulum, Mardi Gras and Live in Europe). Stu used this bass in concert from 1969-1972. It was used at Woodstock, Atlanta Pop Festival, two tours of Europe, one tour of Australia and Japan, two times on the Ed Sullivan Show, The Johnny Cash Show, The Dionne Warwick Special, several appearances on the Dick Clark show, and on numerous other appearances. Comes with a detailed letter and photo from Stu.
