    I think the Isle of Wight gig was maybe recorded oddly. There are times when Roger Daltrey is standing closer to Entwistle's amps and you can hear his treble signal bleeding into the vocal mics. It is possible that only the bass amp in his bi-amp rig was committed to tape for whatever reason. The second thought I've had is that Entwistle might have taken that black Precision bass along at the last minute, as we don't see it again onstage. It might not have been setup to his exacting low-action specifications. I do sometimes wonder if the 'Slab tone' is actually a conglomeration of newly introduced roundwound strings on a P bass, with the foam mute removed and the action lowered. This is combined with newly invented 100 watt amplifiers setup in a newly invented bi-amp setup. If, prior to that, the only P bass tone committed to tape was that created with stiff flatwound strings, foam mutes, high action and an Ampeg B15 rumbling away. I think that maybe a few different things happened to converge in one place, right at the time that the first Slabs hit the UK market.

    I think the following Move clip has a Slab-like grind to the bass tone, but it looks like a normal P bass.


    Also here, standard P, no Hybrid Slab.

  3. Guys,
    that Billington Bass in the photo Is definetely a normal P with a contoured body. Definetely no Slab body and also no Maple Cap neck.
    As for Entwistle:
    he did own only 3 Slabs!
    The First one, The famous Three Knob. Still existing nowadays.
    The Second one, that one was smashed at a gig in the US and it's parts went to become Frankenstein lateron.
    The Third one, that one was auctioned Off At The Sothebys auction.

    I Do own two Slabs. One beeing a Rosewood one.
    All I can say on extensive research for two upcoming Magazine articles, that many facts yet distributed about the Slabs, Need to be corrected!!
