Paul McCartney and George tune up together with Paul's Höfner 500/1 bass and George's Rickenbacker 360/12 - "How many Rickenbacker 12-strings did that guy sell? That was a whole new sound too – Roger McGuinn got the idea from George, and then Roger took it to his own place with the Byrds.” -Tom Petty
