I can’t really blow this up effectively but it may be possible to figure out that yes, there is indeed a left-handed bass guitarist on show in a four-piece ensemble with one of the Best drummers ever

The PA intrigues me. Only one Vox column?

  1. Looks like a Beatle Hofner bass on the right???

  2. Definitely looks like those lads alright but that ain’t no Vox PA speaker.. First the diamonds in the grille cloth are too large. Then the column is too high. Looks home made to me. Vox Columns were a little over 4ft tall as I recall. The reason you can’t see the other one is that you notice that GH’s arm is in front of the cabinet which meant true to the fashion of the day the columns were placed behind the front line so they could hear themselves (No monitors). So the other column is buried back in the shadows and what looks like the stage curtain.. That did not work so well for high impedance microphones but was all the go if you had low impedance mics as they did not feedback so bad. Looks like they are using Reslo mics as well which from memory were switchable L/H.
