Sting received this fretless bass on 1980-11-22 in Chicago, IL, USA.

It was featured in the official video for De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da, which was shot only a few days afterwards.

He used it on a lot of the remaining 1980-1981 Zenyatta Mondatta Tour concerts.

It was also used for TV appearances lip-synching to Spirits In The Material World - like on 1981-12-10.
