Photo shows Paul Gray using the signature Ibanez PGB1L Left hand bass during a live performance with band Slipknot late in his career during the "All Hope Is Gone" tour in 2009. The PGB1L is a modification of Ibanez's ATK series of bass guitars. Ibanez ask Paul Gray in an [interview](http://www.ibanez.com/news?ceId=2761&cat=9) what he thought about the PGB1L bass. His answer was "Well like I said, it's just so versatile. With nine guys, it's easy to step on each other's toes. I can adjust my sound to fit whatever part it happens to be. If it's a percussion heavy part, I can adjust the bass to have more mids and highs. That way it cuts through, but it never gets over the top or too muddy. On other songs, I can crank the low end and fill everything out. It's a big band, and we could easily make it sound like shit [laughs]. That bass allows me to change a lot of things, so that it never gets muddy on stage. I couldn't be happier with it."more
