    You can see the headstock well at 3:59, but I don't recognize it.

    I don't know if this was recorded with that instrument but it's a Yamaha Broadbass. Paul did have a lefthanded one he recorded with.

    Yes, it is a Yamaha. And it sort of sounds like one they have at my school, so probably it is.

    The guitar is actually an old Ibanez Steve Lukather model.
