Jerry Scheff has played with Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Neil Diamond and jazz guitar legends like Barney Kessel and Howard Roberts. While Jerry famously played bass on The Doors’ classic LA Woman, his biggest claim to fame is his role as bassist in Elvis Presley’s TCB (Taking Care Of Business) live backing band in the '70s.
The bassist still tours with the TCB band, minus Elvis for obvious reasons. You can find out more at the TCB fansite. Although he used Fender basses with The King, Jerry has his own Lakland signature model. This beautiful looking bass has a pair of Dano style ‘lipstick tube’ pickups coupled to a preamp. Go here to hear the Lakland do its thing.
