Paul's Gear: a delight for the ears and eyes.
Rickenbacker 350, Fireglo
This Rick has been part of the band since Paul bought it in 1983 at a music store in Syracuse. In 2004, he replaced the pickups with authentic "Toaster Top" style. Mmmm, toast.
Perfect for tunes like "A Hard Day's Night", "Eight Days A Week", "Those Were the Days" and "YesterDay", among others.
This relic of the 20th Century, the XP10 has been the Butties' Goodwill Ambassador from Pianostan since 1998. So far the "long life" internal battery has hung tough, knock wood (I think we can realistically create the "knock wood" sound by blending patches 003 and 214, but we'll check the manual to make sure).
This little beauty is a recent addition to Paul's guitar arsenal. The Casino is a "sure bet" to fill the gaps the Rick can't quite fill.
A Classical Guitar
It takes guts to play one of these babies.
