Which bass guitar was used on Abbey Road?
« on: October 06, 2006, 03:55:23 PM »

I was wondering what bass Paul used on this last album. On the Paul thread about his bass guitars it goes all the way to 'Let it be' but not to Abbey road. Anyone know?

Well - I think it was a mixture. But I have seen a photo with him using a Fender Jazz Bass around that period.

For Abbey Road LP, it's said that Paul used: a Rickenbacker 4001s, a Hofner 500/1 and a Fender Jazz Bass. George used a Fender Bass VI and a Fender Jazz Bass according to that site.

George definately played some bass on Abbey Road. He had a new Fender Jazz bass at the time. And Paul played a lot of guitar.

Love the slimline neck on the Jazz.


(Plus the shades are rather cool...)
