"Since the Zeppelin days, I've always had multi-string basses. I used to use 8-string basses as early as 1970 ('Celebration Day") -- a regular bass with octave strings." - John Paul Jones, Sound On Sound, November 1999.

John has been using multi-string basses since the Zeppelin days, when he bought a Hagstrom and used it on a few riffs on the Presence album, most famously on 'Achilles Last Stand'. - Global Bass, March 2002
