    never seen that video if you have a screen shot it could really help.
  3. ...a Rickenbacker..
    pretty obvious.

    I saw The Hives here in Austin last fall, he was playing a P-Bass then. GREAT show!
  4. 4003.

    yeah, i think you're right... thanks for that

    i might give the hives a look in if they're around and about sometime soon...

    MTV2 aired a Hives concert
    The bassist was playing a Telecaster bass. The kind with the fat humbucker in the neck position
  7. I've downloaded some of their videos, read some interviews, and seems their instruments and clothes always match.
    I'm not sure if they really own the instruments in the videos. I could be wrong. But i've seen him playing a gold p-bass, a white p-bass, a rik, a tele-bass, don't know of any others.
    I would definitely want the Rik.
