From The Desk Of Soko: My Little ’71 Fender Mustang Sunburst Bass

SokoLogoFrench actress/chanteuse Soko just issued her lo-fi, Leonard-Cohen-cryptic, English-language debut, I Thought I Was An Alien (Community Music), She also delighted in the method-acting process she went though for Alice Winocour’s new docudrama Augustine. Soko will be guest editing all week. Read our brand new feature on her.


Soko: I had barely any gear with me before a European tour I was going to do, and renting a bass for the whole tour was going to be almost the same price as buying one. So, I treated myself to this baby, vintage super-lightweight little Mustang, and it’s my favorite instrument to play ever since. I actually get quite uncomfortable playing other/bigger basses now.
