Infos (en anglais) sur les matos de Lemmy, pour ceux que ça peut intéresser.

extrait :
The earliest verifiable information we have on Lemmy's equipment is, of course, from his time in Hawkwind. He joined Hawkwind having previously been, as he admitted it himself, a "rather bad" guitarist. This previous guitar experience would color the way that Lemmy played the electric bass. In Hawkwind, Lemmy didn't just use Rickenbackers, but also used an obscure German electric bass from a company called "Hopf". He used their Studio Bass model which resembles a Gibson SG. This bass is most notable for having been used on Hawkwind's breakout song, "Silver Machine".
You can see Lemmy play and sing 'Silver Machine' (video), playing his Hopf. The thing to note about Lemmy's tone in Hawkwind is that it's not particularly distorted. This is interesting because it was about this time that Lemmy got his first powerful amps (more on that in the amps section!).
Even as early as Hawkwind, and through Motorhead up until at least 1987, Lemmy also used a Gibson Thunderbird Bass. Lemmy was cast in a comedic movie called "Eat the Rich" where he plays the role of a Soviet spy (and amusingly, uses this instrument in the movie, on stage to perform "Doctor Rock"). What's notable about his use of the Thunderbird bass was his affinity for the hotter, higher-output pickups.
