HOFNER VIOLIN BEATLE BASS - 2011 EDITION

HOFNER VIOLIN BEATLE BASS - 2011 EDITION
The book offers scholarly detail of the fabled history of McCartney playing the two left-handed 500/1 basses. McCartney used the 1961 bass until the recording of With the Beatles in late 1963, when he obtained his second 500/1. He used his 1963 bass almost exclusively during the Beatles' touring career. Although by 1966 McCartney had begun using a Rickenbacker bass in-studio, he did break out his 1961 model for the ©Revolution© promo film in 1968 and for the documentary Let It Be the following year. During the shooting, however, the 1961 bass was stolen, and McCartney used the 1963 H©fner for the remainder of the film, including the famous rooftop performance. McCartney has continued to use that H©fner extensively throughout his solo career and continues to use it today. Hardcover, with high quality gloss printed pages. More of a coffee table quality than a traditional educational music publication. 40 pages.
