Quite a reworked Rick there. Looks like a mini humbucker in the neck and a PAF-sized humbucker in the bridge?

And a Fender-ish bridge. It took RIC some time until they made the 4004 with those features, but it never became as popular as modded 4001's.
A bad day of playing bass is still better than a good day of playing cello.

I'm very set in my ways, I know, but that voice would require some getting used to by me in a more, uhum, romantic setting. "Honey, could you roar dirty to me?!"

Some early Yes here:



Early Yes strike me as a sort of lighter-footed band in the Vanilla Fudge/Deep Purple mk 1 pattern. Long, drawn out Beatles covers that go through the whole laundry list of tempos and dynamic changes to get there. A bit precocious and boring at times, but also fairly entertaining.

Two Rickenbackers! Chris Squire's and a (refinished?) 1997 RM in the hands of Peter Banks. Interesting to see Chris's bass when it still had the silver paper stuck to it. I don't buy the story that a lot of wood was shaved from his bass, as it doesn't look any thicker in this video than in any later videos.

The guitar survives:



I feel a bit bad for Peter Banks, really. Then again, one of the reasons I like Fish Out of Water is that Steve Howe isn't on it, adding his off-kilter country bends and nasal lead licks to all and sundry. By the time Yes were producing Going For the One I feel that Steve is the musically weaker link in the chain as he didn't really modernise or change up his style as the sound of the band adapted. Peter Banks might have!  :mrgreen:

This one is interesting and unexpected. Glenn Cornick in Wild Turkey with a Ric!
