Spinal Tap A to Zed

Fender 6-string bass: Nigel’s famous foam-green "don’t even point at it" guitar, made in 1966 and now under round-the-clock guard. Nigel still has not played it. "It’s kind of a Zen thing. Playing it would be kind of like unvirgining a virgin." (GW) It travels with him when he tours with Tap but since the close call with director Marty DiBergi now has a sign that reads "Do Not Come Near. Keep Away." (GP) See also Guitars.
