What's In? [Deaky-topics in this week]
- John's Bass in Early Days
The following quote is from "The first twelve Years". (Thanks Seika Saitoh for introducing this article)
Like all the band John Deacon has remained loyal to the same equipment
throughout his career with Queen:
Pre-CBS Fender Precision Bass with Rosewood neck - one Sunburst and
one in Natural wood finish.
Although remaining loyal to these guitars Deacon has featured
two other similar bass guitars over the last three years:
Fender Telecaster Bass(an unusual guitar because early precision basses
were an adaptation of the Telecaster shape but this was soon abandoned
in favour of the now famous shape. For a few years a Telecaster bass
was produced in its own right but it was always overshadowed by
the popular Precision and Jazz models)
Music Man Stingray Bass by Leo Fender after he sold Fender to CBS.
This is very much an update and basically similar version of Deacon's
favourite Fender Precisin Bass.
Like the rest of the band Deacon's amplification has changed only to
suit the size of venues. In the early days his basic amplification was:
One H/H IC 100 Watt amplifier, one Orange OR120 Amplifier driving one
Orenge 4 x 12 inch (JBL 4560 BK) Bass Bin. This plus a Schaller foot
By 1974 this had expanded to:
3 x Acoustic 370 amplifiers driving 3 x Acoustic 301 Reflex cabinets
plus one HiWatt anplifier driving two Sound City 4 x 12 inch (Gauss)
I've never seen John using telecaster bass. Maybe this "Fender Telecaster Bass" means his old precision, doesn't it?
Thank you for reading! See you next week!
