There was a report of a number of instruments being stolen from a storage locker at Abbey Road late in The Beatles career, possibly around the time of the sessions for Abbey Road
. I don't know if there was an accounting of which instruments were taken in that incident.
I think the Bass VI might be featured in Andy Babiuk's Beatles Gear
book, but I'll have to check. And I think it stands to chance that if an update comes out for the George Harrison Collection app for iPad, the Bass VI could conceivably show up there.
As for members of the Wilbury's playing bass? Here's a shot of Jeff Lynne with his Precision that he played on Tom Petty's video for "I won't back down"
