Hello
« on: November 01, 2007, 09:50:04 PM »
I thought I might introduce myself.

I've got a 1989 340, which I think is wonderful - the only thing I would have liked to have seen different is triangle inlays on the fretboard iso the dotted ones.

Also, seeing you're all such Rick-buffs, I wonder if any of you can settle a dispute I had with a guitar teacher:
'She Said She Said' is my favourite song and the teacher told me it's Ricks, while I was under the impression they're the Epiphone Casino's .....

Thanks in advance and glad I got here.... So much to learn, so little time.....

Marc

Hello and welcome MacBratt. I don't know the answer to your question off hand but, I know where to find it. I will post your definitive answer tomorrow.

Well, it's far from a definitive answer like I promised, as the only two people who would know the answer are dead, but evidence does not support any Rickenbachers during the Revolver sessions and the most likely answer is Lennon on Casino, George on his SG. Hope that helps. If I get any new revelations I will be sure to post them here.

With the exception of some Anthology outtakes of And your bird can sing, there are no Rickenbacher guitars on Revolver I am told. Most likely scenario is the one I posted above, Casino and SG.

Thanks, it's pretty much what I thought. Although I must admit I didn't know George had a SG.

Well George did have his SG at that time and some say he played the bass on that track too. The only track where paul didn't play? But, some people hear the casino on both guitar tracks, so again, it is far from a definitive answer. Absolutely nobody I talked to hears any Rickenbachers on the track though.

Didn't John Lennon says as much in his last interview - the one where he commented on each and every song? I haven't read/seen it in years, so I'm a bit unsure (and things might have gone lost in translation).

This being said, I do play it on my Rick though :-)

Welcome to the forum, MacBratt.  I'm new here myself, though I've been posting at both the RIC corporate forum and the RickResources Forum for awhile now.  I'll go along with BassBob's assessment that She Said, She Said is the Casino and the SG.
