Bass has been working with Prestige on this bass guitar for roughly two years. He’s been rocking prototypes of the Prestige Eric Bass Signature Bass while Shinedown has been on the road to promote their new album, “ATTENTION ATTENTION.”

“He played these basses in every type of venue imaginable, before we settled on the final design,” Adrian O’Brien, V.P. of Prestige Guitars, said in a statement. “It is road tested and road ready, which is a great thing as Shinedown is at the top of their game, in the midst of a major world tour supporting ‘Attention Attention’, their most recent release which has blown up! This bass will be used on stages the world over and needs to stand up to the demands of their intense touring schedule and Eric’s intense stage performance!”

In other news, Shinedown will be back on tour to kick off their 2019 North American run starting Feb. 20 in Estero, Florida. The band will also perform live on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” on Jan. 23.
