    DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY INFO ON THIS FENDER CUSTOM SHOP BEING PLAYED BY PINO PALLADINO? HE USED IT WITH THE WHO FOR THE SUPERBOWL HALF TIME SHOW!

    ALSO, HE IS USING IT ON THE WHO'S QUADROPHENIA 2012 TOUR!!

    THE PICKUPS APPEAR TO BE THUNDERBIRD PUPS??

    HONESTLY, I HAVE NO IDEA. THE PICKUPS LOOK LIKE T-BIRDS, BUT I COULD BE MISTAKEN. THEY PROBABLY AREN'T, I SUPPOSE. ALSO, WHY THE CAPS LOCK?

    It looks like thunderbird pickups.

    Cool you get a t-bird tone without the neck dive.

    I think I want to build a 5 string frankensteined version of that bass.

    Shockingly enough, I never saw him play this when I saw them last month in Greensboro.

    Does anyone know what pedals Pino is using for the Quadrophenia tour? You can see a board in front of him during a few shots in this video from the 12-12-12 concert. I'm also about 90% sure I'm hearing a bit of octave starting around 10:20. A picture of the board would be most helpful.

    It seems that Pino may be using an Ashdown Octaver, but according to their website the pedal is no longer in production.

    Yes he is quite giant-like, but Jaguars also have tiny necks.

    Seems like simple laziness to me. Like people who are too lazy to press the "Shift" key for the pronoun "I." I hope you're not that lazy when creating your art.

    You can see part of Pino's board (with the red and white ones), so he definitely has more than just an octave, but I can't identify the pedals. Any ideas what they may be? I'm quite curious as to what effects he'd be using with The Who, other than his ever present octave.

    I saw the Who last week here in Tulsa, and guess which bass Pino played throughout most of the show?


    Nope. Not the red Precision.

    He played one of these:

    And it sounded great. That guy could probably play just about any bass and make it sound great.

    Pino is playing a Jaguar Bass with DR Black Beauty round wounds thru a Fender SuperBassman 300 with 8x10 cabinet. The other bass onstage is indeed his Fender signature P-Bass with Dr's and old T-Bird pickups like Entwhistle used to play for the Quadrophenia period.
    The PedalTrain pedalboard is simple- Snark tuner, Boss Octave and Fender channel switch, VoodooLab Pedal Power+.
