    The Hofner was his main bass, followed by the Rickenbacker. They probably used different stuff in the studio while recording.

    You mean, like back when he was making famous albums??

    He played the Hofner for a few years, then used a Jazz Bass on the white album, then got the Rickenbacker, and seemed to play that the most. He's played other things as well, and also used a Wal.

    He used the Hofner during the early Beatle days then went to the Rick when they were doing Revolver recordings. He swnet back to the hofner for the groups last few albums(Let it be, Abbery Road). He went back to the Ric during his time with Wings and stayed with that pretty much till the early 90's when he started using a Wal 5 string. He has also used a Fender Jazz Bass at times. He has also used his upright bass that once was owned by Bill Black
  5. Paul also played a Yamaha around 1979 during the BACK TO THE EGG sessions and ill-fated world tour.
