    Would it be a safe assumption that that is a P with flats tone?

    It's harder than people think to tell the difference between Flats & Rounds on a recording. Without researching it I'd be willing to bet that they were rounds.

    John Deacon almost always used flats, Rotosounds to be exact.

    Wasn't he using a stingray by that point?

    Deacon used a Stingray on the song. Deacon switched to halfrounds in '77 or '78.
