Tom Petersson—conceptualizer of the 12-string bass and original low-end man for Cheap Trick—gives Premier Guitar a glimpse at some of the rare gems in his vast collection of vintage guitars and basses

Tom Petersson

Tom Petersson
Petersson is a bassist's bassist. He's the founding member of and lowend provider for iconic American rock band Cheap Trick, inventor of the 12-string bass, and revered for a tone that's all his own. He's also the curator of a very impressive personal collection of basses and guitars: from highly collectible vintage pieces, to fiercely unique one-offs from small-scale builders, to prototypes from the big manufacturers that only a handful of musicians will ever see or touch. Petersson recently shared a handful of his instrument candy with Premier Guitar, and, take it from us: these fine specimens will make just about any player drool.
