Looks like a Fender V with blocks to me. The short scale caught my attention. WIki lists JPJ as a player of one...

The following players are reported to have owned a Fender Bass V:

James Jamerson, Motown legend
John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin
C.F. Turner of Bachman-Turner Overdrive

Cool Rhi, thanks. One month in 73' eh? That's a small window. All the live footage on "The Song Remains The Same", is from 73' , but I don't recall seeing this in the movie at all.

Just watching at the moment Celebration Day concert O_O

Quick glance in the mirror tells me my genetics run much closer to Jimmy Page's than the ethereally young looking Mr Jones [smilie=smilie_kopf.gif]
