All right connoisseurs…
what is the make on that last one.
I’ve never seen him play one like that…Gretsch???
It’s Kay Jazz Special bass. He used on a few occasions including the 1982 Ebony & Ivory video. By the way it’s a right handed bass.
Thank you, Javier. Very cool…
into the tug of war time machine we go…
Cool indeed. I wonder when Paul decided to remove the pickguard of his Hofner bass.
about halfway through the ’66 tour of the good old u.s.a..
I liked the Ric better when it was painted with some crazy colors.. The Hofner is probably going to be the most expensive music instrument ever one day… (if it’s not already)
Paul also removed the set list from the Hofner Bass during recording of the Flaming Pie album.
The Hofner Bass is insured for 2 million pounds
He also used to have the older, slightly different ver of that hofner which he was using constantly till he bought newer version, that was till about october 1963. After that he used to take it on tours as a spare bass, just in case. He also played on it in 1968 David Frost programme when Beatles performed Revolution. Also he was using it during Let It Be sessions, and unfortunately for the last time, cause then during that sessions it was nicked.
