2.c. What do they play? (Status Quo)

Rick and Francis' main guitars are Fender Telecasters,
although Francis has been known to play a G&L Telecaster, and
Rick a variety of guitars, including a Gibson SG. Francis
uses slightly heavier than average strings, and Rick's are a
*lot* heavier! They both use Marshall JCM900 and/or JCM600
amps and Marshall 4x12 cabinets, with Vox AC30 combo
amplifiers kept behind them with a mike feed to the mixing
desk. It all adds up to a great, very distinctive sound!

Rhino plays a lot of basses when recording, but on stage
sticks to Status basses (no relation, I'm told). Andy plays
mostly Roland keyboards, and Jeff plays Premier drums. On the
song 'Gerdundula,' however, Rick, Francis, Andrew and Rhino
all play guitars.

Full details are on the official web site, as are details of
Andy's keyboards, Jeff's drums and Rhino's basses.
