Custom Made Mark Hoppus Pink Bass
Mark Allan Hoppus (born March 15, 1972) is an American musician, record producer, and television host, best known as the bassist and one of two lead vocalists for the rock band Blink-182. He became interested in skateboarding and punk rock in junior high, and received a bass guitar from his father at the age of fifteen. After moving to San Diego in 1992, Hoppus' sister introduced him to Tom DeLonge, and with drummerScott Raynor, the band formed Blink-182.
Most people choose the instrument they play but in Mark Hoppus’ case, the bass chose him. Although he writes most songs using a guitar and can find his away around a keyboard, becoming a bassist was his calling. He sees the bass as the ultimate connector – a bridge between the drums and the guitar. “The bass sets a foundation for all the melodies laid on top of it – it requires a lot of taste,” he says.
The Mark Hoppus Jazz Bass was introduced by Fender Musical Instruments Corporation in 2000. It was first seen in the Blink-182 music video for "Adam's Song". It has a Fender Jazz Bass body with a string-through body design and bridge system and Fender Precision Bass neck and pickups. The model uses only a single volume knob and no tone knob.
Mark had a custom made Hot Pink bass, which had skull and crossbone mother of pearl inlays stopping at the 12th fret. Mark decorated the bass with, at most three stickers, most notably the Blink 182 smiley face in the upper corner of the bass. This colour was the most famous and the pink bass was used until +44's first show.
This bass is, most probably, his rarest.
