'70s Strat.
An EL34 amp [well, I assume so].

Nothing really special, just a generic rock tone.

You could always try; http://www.fasteddieclarke.com/index.htm

I'm not exactly positive but I think that Motorhead has always had a JCM800/Gibson combo with their guitarists. I could very well be wrong though.

Phil uses Marshall JCM 800s, Parkers Nitefly, Gibson Les Pauls, the usual you expect out of a rock band, not sure about Eddie though.

ive been told the whole backline consists of marshalls, Lemmy uses marshalls and apparently so have all the guitarists.

they are a british band, so the british amps would seem to computer

Yea the Marshall part I'm sure of - even "Fast Eddie" used Marshalls.

Actually, Lemmy is the only bassist I've ever seen use Marshalls lol

Well huh - I always thought he played an LP. Guess I was mistaking him for Phil

Yea it does. I was reading somewhere that it was modeled after his favorite Marshall head that had been stolen or something along those lines.

When I saw them live he used nothing but Gibson Explorers... and a load of marshalls.

Was it Fast Eddie playing, or a different guitarist?
I'm pretty sure that wasn't Eddie.

I'm not a big motorhead fan so couldn't say, it was Donnington 08

But MH videos (older) generally you see a strat so I guess that's what it is.

It's modeled on a 91' Super Bass, IIRC, & an original Super Bass can be had for much cheaper


Actually its a modeled after a modified '92 Super Bass
