If you happened to be watching the 63rd Grammy Awards last week, there was probably something that caught your eye during Maren Morris’ performance of “The Bones” featuring John Mayer. If you’re a bass player, and we’re guessing you are, then you most likely looked beyond the fact that superstars Morris and Mayer were on stage together absolutely killing it, and instead focused your attention on the bass that Annie Clements was playing (who was also killing it).
That Jazz Bass/synth bass hybrid is a creation that Clements herself put together in order to be able to easily play both instruments while also singing and executing her stage kicks. In this clip, Clements gives an inside look at her creation and breaks down how she built it and how she uses it.

And here’s the clip of the performance:
