nah, that looks like a 1970s bass judging by the pickup spacing, bullet truss and the maple fretboard

intresting to listen to him!
That is a great video.


+1 to those who were inspired by Noel's playing. Whether Jimi or Noel came up with the lines, they were marvelous, and contributed to making the Jimi Hendrix Experience what it was.

Hear here! He's probably the biggest reason I picked it up, among many others.

I started playing bass in 1967 and it was Hendrix, Free and Cream that I loved most. it was only later in the 70s that I really started to understand the bass lines they used and just how important the were to the make up of the songs.
when i look back now at the age of 60 I see that almost all the songs i loved had great bass player in the band, I really like Andy Frazer of Free too. I really like Noel playing but think Bill Cox drives the beat a bit more.

There's an interview in th UK's Bass Magazine this month with both Glenn Hughes and Andy Fraser, they both mention their love for Noel's playing with Hendrix. I'm still a Billy Cox man myself though.

Preferred Billy.... In the genre, I really preferred Jack Bruce to either though. That said, I'm not a huge fan of the psychadelic blues jam power trio era... Are there recordings of Hendrix throwing down with Bruce ?

Just to derail to Billy for a moment:

If you haven't seen/heard this video yet, the whole band is in top form and the bass is mixed pretty high. Billy is having a stellar day:

You might need to hang on (or fast forward) to get past the artsy intro, but it is worth it.

Older basses are not better, they are just older.

I got mine for really cheap- like $500, I think- but the seller really wanted to keep the pick guard with Noel's signature. I didn't mind, really. I didn't buy it as an investment or anything. Of course, now I realize that may not have been the wisest thing to let slide, but...

I paid around 500-600 for each one I bought(and sold), over the years. Two out of three of them had the signature. I read somewhere that he only signed some of the 1000 limited run. I have also read that there are guys putting on a fake autograph to increase the value of the ones that didn't get signed by Noel. So, if I ever do the Hendrix cover thing and need to buy another one, I am not even going to worry about the signature.
They were good basses though...

I met Noel in 1998 and he signed my original 1967 mono UK copy of Are You Experienced that my dad bought when he was 16

To me, the proof is in the pudding. While I enjoy the later Cox/Mitchell rhythm section shows, Jimi and the Experience were truly on FIRE with the original trio. Listen to Winterland or all those great early gigs on "Stages" or the Albert Hall gig. Outstanding, and really going places with the music. What I like about Noel is what I think, perhaps, Jimi had a love/hate thing with........Noel PUSHED Jimi when the jams got going. Sometimes that lead to clashes and cacophony, but more often they reached heights that Jimi never quite got to, later on.

Noel also spoke onstage, and acted as if the Experience were a real BAND, not just a star and his sidemen, and I bet that got up Jimi's nose from time to time.

So yeah, he might not have been the greatest, but Noel gets an undeserved bad rap at times. Glad to see so many here who get it.

- Jim

PS.....I had one of those Redding MIJ Jazz basses, and it's the only bass I regret selling. Every one I played was something special.
