i heard that he is now with ESP. is this an ESP?
My 1st thought was an ESP from the body shape but I can't see the headstock shape. From the "X" @ the 12th fret, it's definitly a custom bass, though.
I have seen doug pinnick in some ESP literature with an eclipse style bass, and that body does look like the eclips body style...
Sorry to take so long to respond, just found this string. The bass with the X in the 12th position is a Yamaha, the only 12-string bass Yamaha has ever made, to be precise. For a whole bunch of close-ups see www.12stringbass.net on the Yamaha page.
I think he has a four just like that yamaha twelve.
He pretty much used all Yamaha's live. I saw the band in May in Boston.
That looks like it's based on some Yamaha guitar model, judging from the body style.
I think Pinnick has been advertising Yamaha axes for ages.
He used ESPs on the last tour. I guess this means that he is back in the Yamaha camp.
It must also mean that he is playing the 12 more than he has in recent years!
Here's a picture of Doug with an ESP.
Hasn't Doug played a Hamer 8-string too?
He has at least 3 Hamer 12 stringers, but I've never seen him with an 8 stringer of any make.
