Wow, thanks! smiley A fellow bassist of mine who played Firth of Fifth claimed that song has an 8-string bass, though I'm not sure whether he referred to the studio version or the Seconds Out one. I can't hear it in either.

He may have gotten confused with the song before FoF. Even though I have a hard time hearing it on the studio version (perhaps this is another ghost - IKWIL studio sounds like a RICK bass to me).

The studio versions of "I Know What I Like" and "Firth Of Fifth" both sound like the Rick to me.

I put these together for this thread. For now, they're unlisted, because I'm not really "done" with them. I might delete and re-upload them at some point.

FoF -- https://youtu.be/qaxGdHzF3wo

IKWIL -- https://youtu.be/ebSBZCAy4wY

Seconds Out is harder to work with, but I'll try to figure out something. I'm almost positive that Mike plays the Shergold for "Firth Of Fifth" on Seconds Out.

Oh, wait... here we go.

Technically, that's not from Seconds Out, but it's from the same tour. Check out that fuzz at about 4:05! You can hear it on the Seconds Out version, too, but it's not nearly as loud.

You're welcome! Here's one that I missed. It may be his best bass line -- two different sides of Mike Rutherford on two different basses (three, if you count bass pedals) in the same song. In the original, the bass pedals cover up the bass guitar during the loud part starting at 4:05.

I know of at least one more that I originally missed with the 8-string. I'll put it up soon.

Thank you! Mike is such a superb bassist smiley

On a sidenote, do you know (or anybody else) what this high-pitched string instrument is Steve plays at 1:04 - 1:40? It must the same thing he employed on his song 'Icarus Ascending' on Please Don't Touch huh

You do have to wonder why anyone would do a cut and shut on two guitars like this - a proper luthier would have done this somewhat differently.
Our bass player Martin is a luthier and now working on his new doubleneck - but it will be "proper" not a car crash! smiley


That's most likely because Mike wanted it that way! He took two instruments he knew he was happy with, and had them conjoined!

Had he commissioned a whole new guitar there would always be a chance he'd be unhappy with one of the instruments (or even both).

This is what I was told regarding the double-neck used on the Turn it on Again tour - so it doesn't necessarily apply to the Rickenbacker and Rickenbacker/MicroFrets doublenecks - but it seems likely.
