Jared Followill is the bassist of one of the most successful rock bands of the last decade, Kings of Leon. Along with brothers Nathan, and Caleb, and his cousin Matthew, Jared has toured the world numerous times, and recorded five albums so far, with a sixth reportedly on the way. Pretty impressive for a 26 year old. Whenever you see Jared on stage, expect him to be rocking a Gibson Thunderbird IV bass. This beautiful bass has been Jared's instrument of choice for many years, and aside from being very esthetically pleasing it just sounds fantastic.
