    Since no top-holding screws can be seen, that's definitely an XL2, not an L2. Moving the screw heads to the back of the body was a cosmetic improvement for Steinberger's L-series basses. Older L2's Allen screw heads are clearly visible.

    BTW, the bassist's nickname isn't "Chicho" but "Chucho", which is how we all in my country affectionately call all those guys named Jesús (Jesus). So, his real name is Jesús (a.k.a. Chucho) Merchán, probably the colombian bassist with the biggest recording and performing credits, since he lived for so many years in the U.K.
