@Pixley Apparently "whistle pig" is one of the local names for them out here in the Intermountain West. The "pig" part baffles me, but it sounds right overall.

@greg Yeah, absolutely. I think I remember reading that Tina Weymouth uses a shorter scale bass… partially for reach and also to give the Talking Heads a slightly more anxious tone. I think the interview said that she'd occasionally get misogynist bullshit over it, which is why I'm thinking Wata's "custom" could have a shorter scale but she'd not be keen to point that out.

Anyway, rad that you got to see her / presumably also Boris live!

@greg I haven't found anything that says it is a shorter scale, just a lot of quotes saying it's a '86 custom Les Paul. A shorter scale is certainly possible. I can also see why she wouldn't exactly want to broadcast the different scale, considering all the gender bullshit in rock idolatry. musicradar.com/news/rig-tour-b
