I used to think HOTH was the Jazz, but now you mention the P......
Yeah I agree. As does my ‘68
Well, the single coil P-bass has plenty of treble attack and Jones also used round wound strings with it (the Jazz had flats). I think he just liked the raunchier sound it gave that way and he definitely used that to a good effect in the studio. Not saying that the Jazz wasn't used that way , "Heartbreaker" is a good example.
Easy, This one:
I was at that concert. It was a great day.
Tell you a funny story about that concert........
There was a run on the music stores the following week with guitarists wanting to buy a sunburst Les Paul like Pages, only to find that there was no such thing. The stores were confused and it didn't exist in the catalogues and with no history, no internet and total confusion, this went on until Gibson eventually reintroduced one in the middle 70's a sunburst with unfortunately, those horrible little mini humbuckers.
It was still some time before we learned about those original Gibson Standards back then, where I eventually got to hear one in the flesh so to speak, where my brother who had and still has a 1961 Les Paul with PAF's and we played the 2 versions side by side. Another Great musical day.
