If you know how a Fender Rhodes sounds, you can clearly notice that Paul McCartney uses one of these instruments during Rockshow. You can also see the back of the Rhodes in 0:50 and 1:05 and the left side in 1:07 while Paul uses it. If you listen to the intro of the song Magneto and Titanium Man you can lock fast that he uses a that kind of instrument. The film Rockshow was recorded during the "Wings over America Tour" in 1976. The title of the video says it was in 79 but it was in 76. The Rhodes Mark 2 was published in 1979 so it can only be that one which was released before the film Rockshow was recorded. So it can't be a Mark 2. Proof URL: fenderrhodes.com/pianos/mark2.html
