Roger Waters used a Fender Jazz Bass during the Pink Floyd performance of Set the controls of the heart of the sun on the French ORTF TV show “Forum Musiques”, broadcasted on 15 February 1969.
It’s almost certain that the instruments they played were borrowed just for the occasion, because this performance was mimed by the band. Judging by the video footage here, the Jazz Bass Roger used, could originate from between 1960 and 1965 (it’s hard to tell from the video, whether his bass had two dual-concentric controls, or three).
But it’s obvious that it had a natural colour body, white pick guard, rosewood fingerboard with dot markers, and quite interestingly, this bass also had an additional pickup placed closer to neck, with the control knob under a tug bar.
(For anyone interested, the electric guitar that David Gilmour played on “Forum Musique” was a cherry red Gibson ES-355.)

Have you ever seen anything more beautiful in your entire life?

Curtis Novak makes some of the best pickups out there, but he also possesses a wealth of knowledge regarding guitar history. He once had the opportunity to shed some light on Herbie Flowers’ “infamous Jazz Bass.” Infamous, that is, not only because it’s one of the earliest known examples of the Fender Jazz Bass––with Herbie himself insisting he purchased it in late 1959––but also because it has one of the wildest finishes you’ll ever see! 

The red, white and blue motif is courtesy of Lake Placid Blue (NO CLEAR!) over Fiesta Red over primer. Also note the switch, which was a built-in fuzz effect! This bass is exceedingly interesting, and you can read Curtis Novak’s thoughts and observations here.

Born Today: Leo Fender

Clarence Leonidas Fender was born August 10, 1909, in Anaheim. Despite never learning to play an instrument, Fender was the creator of the first mass-produced electric guitar (the Telecaster), the first electric bass, and the best known amplifiers in the business. Learn more about this 1992 inductee at the Library and Archives.

Video: Jeff Beck, Marty Stuart, and David Gilmour discuss their Fenders in this 1993 promotional film.
