    What kind of P is Pino using? Looks like 2 mudbuckers?

    Looks like a pair of Gibson Thunderbird (original real T'bird PUPs, not the newer ones) PUPs to me.

    Look like some sort of smaller soapbars to me. Strange custom beast for sure.
  7. I just saw it as well. It definately had 2 humbuckers in it. They looked like EMG's. The whole band sounded awesome! I love Pino. Did you all notice the big Ashdown cab he had.

    I thought they looked like EMG's, but they looked too big. Did anyone notice polepieces?

    Interesting spin on a Fenderbird. All Fender P bass body with T-bird pups.

    I can see some future GAS for some Mike Lull T-bird pups in one of his P basses.

    That was the oddest bass I have seen in a while..

    No logo on the headstock, either.

    +1 to Tbird pups. Looked like the old 70s chrome covered ones.

    No offense to Daltrey, but he looks like an old woman with that get-up.

    +1. Pino did great, but it just wasn't the same without John.

    Was hoping for a "Pino" and expecting a Jag. It sounded great though!

    Isn't there a fender model with two soapbars in it? Can't recall the name.

    I got a bigger kick out of Townsend and his 60 year old man belly on some of the windmills....that and his "Gangsta" look....


    Seriously, they sounded good! I like Pino but he is no Entwistle....I wish they showed a little more of Pino as he is part of the band, no?
