A guy at Guitar Center told me Yamaha is really excited about more dates with Hagar and Anthony. Apparently it's boosted a lot of interest in the Anthony signature basses they produce.

In honor of the extended dates, Yamaha is considering issuing an all red Anthony signature bass, this one featuring only one string because Mike found the other three interfered with his playing.

The body of the bass will be shaped like a Cabo Wabo bottle and the truss rod cover is shaped like Mike’s ape drape in honor of this historic event.
