    Which bass is he playing on the "Exit...Stage Left" live album?
  2. I'm pretty sure it's the Rickenbacker.

    yeah, he's using the Rickenbacker on the ESL live video. It's just that his tone is very growly...I know he was using a jazz bass during this era also (ESL was the Moving Pictures tour, right?), so I wasn't sure. Listen to Red Barchetta, it almost sounds like there's some distortion in there, its so snarly. :)

    I saw them on that tour. Geddy used his Rickenbackers for everything except YYZ. For that he used his Jazz Bass.

    I like 5, 8, 10, and 12 string basses
    Yes that is correct ...
