Man, I’m glad you got your bass back. That’s a great story. You should find out when Denny is coming through your area and show him the bass. He has a real good band with him these days and, naturally, they play a ton of Wings songs. It makes sense that Paul wouldn’t keep it, being left handed, but it’s nice to know he cared enough to make sure it got back to you. Is that the original neck pickup? Surprised it isn’t a toaster.
But I am perplexed as to why you’d give a right handed Rickenbacker to Paul McCartney who plays left handed?
42 years later to be reunited with that bass is pretty incredible.
Yes it it is the original pickup, Denny came down and posed with me with the bass in Sept of 2017.
It was Denny Laine that suggested that I give the bass to Paul, most of Pauls instruments are actually right handed, he can flip them and play them either way, a skill he learned in the early days, you can find pictures of him playing Lennons Rick upside down, a Fender Jazz upside down and and a Epiphone Rivoli upside down, he evens plays his Elvis Bill Black bass from an upside down position, it common for him.
Paul has more righthanded instruments than left.
Learn something new at TB quite often. Thanks
Very cool story, I bought a new one in 1977, mapleglo 4001 and sold it several years later but now have a mapleglo 1979 4001 that looks just like yours. I also bought a Ric-O-Sound box about 20 years ago when they were D/Cing them but it walked away at some point, great story.
Wow, cool story.
Hendrix could do the same.
What a cool story!
Fantastic story! I often dream about finding my old 77 4001, again.
Definitely a awesome chain of events, great story, documentation, and a keeper of a bass for sure!!!!!!
Glad you got it back!!!!
I thought Denny died from the H years ago.
This is like one of those stories about a lost dog who finds his way home again, awesome!
Anyone have a photo of Paul playing a righty? I've never seen one.
Insane! Glad u got it back
