Phil Playing a Casady Bass?

This was in Rolling Stone last month:

Looks to be from a few years ago?

Edit: -found this on the Alembic discussion page- "Picture of Phil with the Casady Signature bass is from The Other Ones set at the 10/27/02 Bridge School Benefit. It was an acoustic set and he probably thought this bass would give him a better sound in that context. Not sure if he ever played it on stage again.

Forgot to mention that Phil and Jack talked a bit about Alembic when they were trading stories at TXR the other night. The beginning of the YouTube clip is pretty interesting even if you skip the music."

OK, turnabout is fair play- Casady playing a "Lesh" bass :-)
