Spread the love! If you like what you are seeing, share it on social networks and let others know about The Paul McCartney Project.
Keith Smith has been Paul McCartney’s instrument technician since the 1980s and is the custodian of such iconic instruments as Paul’s 1962 Hofner 500/1 bass played on so many Beatles, Wings & solo hit records and his 1964 Epiphone Texan acoustic guitar (“Yesterday” was recorded on it). These most precious artefacts of classic rock music are tuned both live and in the studio with a Peterson tuner. Keith uses an AutoStrobe 590, and there are several long-serving Peterson Model 450 strobe tuners in the McCartney gear arsenal.
