Yeah the American Bass Guitar magazine is a different, and in my opinion, a better magazine. Hard to find over here at times without taking out a subscription. It's always a bummer when a good magazine is cancelled.

Yes, you are right. I'll have to look harder. They did mention that they will be doing a Ric special later this year... So that's something to look forward to.

The article with Chris Squire is titled, "Master of the Rickenbacker". Very insightful, if you're into that sort of thing.

Which issue is this? We've still got issue 30 in the shops here (UK). It's got Chris Squire in it but Bruce Foxton on the cover. I better keep an eye out for the Geddy one.



The issue with Geddy on the cover was issue 5,unavailable on back issue. I found mine on E-Bay UK,keep looking,you might be lucky.

I hate to burst some bubbles here guys but here it is...

Geddy isn't going to be pulling out a Rickenbacker anytime soon. He was recently asked if he'd use one on the summer 2007 tour, even on just one song. He said no way. Alex Lifeson has been bringing tons of his guitars on tour for the last couple of tours, even the white Gibson ES-355, but Geddy isn't going back. No doubleneck Rick 4080 either!

Here's the classic Rush shocker for those who never knew...
Geddy only used a Fender Jazz Bass on Moving Pictures. He still used a Rick live until the Grace Under Pressure tour, and it became the backup (to a Steinberger!).

Why? Does anyone know?

Well, it's been 8 years, so why not update this thread? Geddy did indeed pull out his Rickenbacker 4001 bass for A Passage To Bangkok on the 2007-08 tour, so he was playing with us when he said he wouldn't. Historical note: In 1978-80 when Rush played Bangkok live, Geddy played it on the 4080 doubleneck since he played the 12 string rhythm on the solo. I know he thinks the 4080 is way too heavy these days. There was a short interview recently with him in his home playing a Rickenbacker bass quietly. With the upcoming 40th Anniversary Tour starting this spring, there is a always chance for a Rickenbacker sighting ;) .
