Yep - he recorded a lot with some cheapie defretted short scale - I forget the maker. He wasn't a chops guy, but he played on a lot of terrific tracks - he understood swing & feel real well. My favorite is We Love You - check that one out.

Q:did Bill Wyman do any good bass work?
A: Nah. Unless you count always being there on time...
And he played mean cello on 'Their Satanic Majesties' Request'.
But maybe you've never heard the 'Stones' sole foray into psychedelia...

According to the book "How the Fender Bass Changed the World", it was an unnamed Japanese knockoff that he defretted with the intent to refret it, but discovered if he fretted directly on the slots where the frets used to be he could get what he needed. He never put frets back in it. This bass is the one he used prominently on "Paint it Black".

Liked Wyman very much as a bass player. He just did what he had to do with sometimes a little twist.
