It's Sir Paul, circa 1990 or so, with a 5 string Rickenbacker.
At this point, I think it would be pretty cool to do a visual accounting for Sir Paul with all of his basses from throughout the years. The ones I can think of?
-1961 Hofner 500/1 -1963 Hofner 500/1 -1966 Rickenbacker 4001 (fireglo, later painted psychedelic colors, finally stripped to natural finish) -1966/67 Fender Jazz Bass (3 tone sunburst) -Unidentified Fender Precision -Bill Black's upright bass -Unidentified Yamaha bass -Kay semi-hollowbody -Zemaitis acoustic bass guitar -Rickenbacker 5 string -Wal 5 string
Paul had a Precision Bass?
