Neat picture, thanks a bunch for sharing. : )
“I can play with these white boys wid just one hand!”
Is that the Fender VI leaning up against Billy’s Rhodes? I don’t recall any other Fenders in “Let It Be” other than that (and George’s Tele, natch).
I was thinking the same thing as mcarp555. It’s has to be the Fender Bass VI. I have seen pics of George playing his psychedelic strat during these sessions. But this is not that guitar. George’s strat has the smaller pre-CBS headstock.
27th January 1969, Apple Studios. Photograph by Ethan Russell. This was the day the Hammond M-102 and Leslie 122 arrived. There were five basses during these rehearsals/recording sessions: McCartney’s 1963 500/1, 4001S, lefty Jazz Bass, the Bass VI, and the righty Jazz Bass.
Best wishes and happy Christmas.
That being a six-string Fender headstock, it rules out the Hof, Ric and both Jazz basses. And if Rocky has the smaller headstock, it must be the VI. I wonder who’s bed that bass is under now?
