Fender should issue a Chris Squire Signature model … like the one he used to own
He was better known for his Jazz Bass, though. I even saw him use it when I saw Yes in 2013.
Besides, the Tele Bass is tainted with Vincent Gallo's DNA (not his real name, BTW), who'd want to have anything to do with that?
This bass got separated from Chris Squire in the early 70s as part of a divorce settlement … but imagine if you will if Chris never got a Rickenbacker 4001 and he played that bass as his main bass … it does sound similar to his Rick bass tracks
look at this video here … about 15:40 he is playing the Fender … also before that he is playing his 60s Rickenbacker with the contact paper stuck all over it
A Squier Squire!
I'd buy it.
In my head, I'll always see Squire playing a Rickenbacker.
If I remember correctly, this is the bass he used on Lucky Seven from Fish Out of Water.
Yeah, he's definitely indelibly attached to his 4001, but I've seen Yes live twice, and on both occasions he rocked both a Jazz and P at points during the show. As well as the triple neck!!!
That was kind of a cool thing about YES shows if you were tuned into which bass he recorded songs with. You could look at the stage and kinda guess the set list from what basses were there. No triple neck? No Awaken!
Tho it wasn't an exact science , as I've seen him play Owner on the Ric, the Electra, and the Mouradian.
I still think of him as a 4001 guy. And who would sign his signature basses?
That was his Lakland Bob Glaub with Joe Osborn neck.
Dang, that was one ferocious sounding bass, at least when the late Mr. Squire played it!
If fender Squier will make a stupid Mike dirnt p bass then there is no reason why they shouldn't have a Chris Squire signature bass. They have so many artist line basses already why not one for a man who inspired a whole new way to play the instrument?
Here's Chris playing his Sig model
I've always loved his distorted tone in that.
Jimmy Page, famously associated with Les Pauls, has a signature Telecaster that will be revealed shortly. If he can get a signature Fender as a storied Gibson player, Squire can get a sig Fender as a storied Ric player.
Similarly, many would have a difficult time guessing that this signature g*itar from the Gibson Custom Shop was a tribute to Robbie Krieger, who played SGs onstage with The Doors (but used a mid-fifties Les Paul for slide and studio overdubs).
Boss, what's going on with the controls on this bass?
