  1. We all know that Sir Paul McCartney has used LaBell flats, and Pyramid Gold Flats, mostly on his Hofner. But, does this picture suggest from the red silks that he's also used Thomastic-Infeld Jazz flats? Screen Shot 2020-06-11 at 3.50.07 PM.png

    I read somewhere that he has recently TI Flats on at least one of his basses.

    My La Bella 760FL set has red silks. Can’t say for sure it’s the same, however.

    Since Sir Paul is from UK, he could be using Roto 77's.

    LaBella had red on their flats for a while, and PMC did use them for a few years. Since the early 2000's he uses Hofner (Pyramid) flats only on his '63.
