Motown’s James Jamerson is arguably the greatest bass player of all time. As a session musician he played on twenty five Billboard Hot 100 number one hits, as well as nearly seventy R&B number one hits. “My Girl,” “Shotgun,” “For Once In My Life,” “Dancing In the Streets,” “I Heard It Through The Grapevine,” … the list of hits is endless. 

P-Bass Funk Master

Jamerson’s main instrument was a 1962 Fender Percision Bass he dubbed The Funk Machine. JJ’s FunkMachine has all the funky goodness of Jamerson’s original at a fraction of the price!

Fan Fiction

I wrote a fictional account of what happened to the real Funk Machine in my collection Songs in the Key Of Madness. The story is called “Malediction and The Funk Machine.”
