This has got to be one of the earliest videos featuring a 4001.

Contrary to what James Bond says, a good Gibson should be stirred, not shaken.

We play that number, and the bass on that version is about as easy to hear as any I've found.  I sent myself a link home to use for practice.  Gracias!
Good sloppy playing is an art in itself. (Uwe)

Glad everyone likes it. It's always neat to see an electric bass on black and white footage. I'm sure there have got to be some other old shots of rics beside this. Post it up if you can find them.

I'd love to find footage of Jim Reeves and his Blue Boys with their Ricks but the only film footage I've seen has the lead guitarist and bassist playing Fenders.

I hadn't noticed that bit of stage dressing. Interesting that they decorated his pedestal as an amp!

The copyright Police have been in and removed some earlier Rush material so being a sad little b*st*rd so-and-so I thought I'd drop some more 70's CLANK into the thread...

For I have dined on double-necks and drank the milk of paradise...


... and some early Yes...

Decent quality color "video" (well, film originally) of early Yes with Chris Squire playing his seldom-seen 21-fret 4001 instead of his usually seen cream-color RM 1999 (4001S):

This thread wouldn't be complete without Racey - get those moves down pat!



And while we're at it - a Ric sound to die for:



Let's not forget them:



You cannuck get enough?
