Rancid Bassist Matt Freeman… Reverb Shop Now Open

Punk fans and bass lovers, get ready… Rancid’s Matt Freeman’s gear is on Reverb.

The bassist and vocalist of Rancid, a band that helped usher in a new wave of punk music in the late ’90s and early 2000s, has opened shop. Before Rancid, Freeman also played in Operation Ivy, a short-lived band pivotal to the ska-punk movement.

As a longtime collector, Freeman has accumulated an array of vintage and modern basses, pedals, and guitars. Now, he’s ready to give his fans a chance to appreciate the gear the way he has.

“I have really loved collecting all kinds of instruments over the years,” Freeman says. “It’s time I let some go so other people can enjoy them as much as I have.”

The Official Matt Freeman of Rancid Reverb Shop features a 1966 Fender Telecaster bass that Freeman played in Rancid’s “Who Would’ve Thought” video. “I bought this bass around 1997 because I liked the neck,” he said. “It’s really worn in a good way. It has oval tuning machines. I have played this bass live, mostly in the late ’90s, early 2000s.”
