"Ovation Magnum ! Don't ask why, but long ago I decided I should have this bass. My thinking was that it would be just right for some Gabriel tracks. Took it on the plane with me to his studio in England. As I entered and put the bass down, the engineer said "What are you doing with Peter's bass?" Turns out Peter, who doesn't even play bass and only has one, had the exact same bass. Didn't use it."more
On Sonic Youth's [website](http://www.sonicyouth.com/mustang/eq/bass02.html), it says, about Kim Gordon's Ovation Magnum: "Used by Kim: 1983-1987 NOTES: This was Kim's primary bass during the early-mid 80s. Kim had 2 of these, and I'm not sure when she started using the second one (by '87 for sure). The 2nd one had a sliding pickup and an on-board graphic EQ. The top 3 pictures are of the first one, from 1985, the bottom picture is of the second one, from 1987. The first one is now hanging in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio! Somebody should go take a picture of it... -Brown body -2 pick-ups -Rosewood fretboard -4 knobs -3-position switch -Various stickers (first one had a 'Gremlins' sticker, a 'Confusion is Sex' sticker, and some others)"more
