Bill Wyman With Shaftesbury Bass Wembley Rehearsal Studios 1968

Posted on August 11, 2014

Here we have a rare shot of Bill Wyman tuning up a Shaftesbury ricky-style bass at Wembley Rehearsal Studios in 1968. He had a penchant for hollow bodied basses with slim necks and usually favored his famous Framus Star model bass. However this shot clearly shows him holding a Shaftebury model. You can tell by the headstock shape and lack of sharkfin inlay that would have been on a Rickenbacher. Good choice Mr. Wyman.
