    I was just watching the Opeth Live at the Royal Albert Hall and I noticed that Martin was playing a Fender, I think?

    When I saw them last year he played a Marcus Miller. I've seen previously that he plays the Marcus Fender and also Sandberg.

    If you look at this:

    Opeth - The Leper Affinity (Live at the Royal Albert Hall) - YouTube

    at 1:40, 2:13, 2:23 they are pretty decent shots of the bass. His bass has what looks like a Fender headstock, and has a Jazz pickup at the neck and a Humbucker at the bridge? what model of Fender is it? or is it another brand?

    Anyone know?

    He used a different one on the last tour. It was a jazz but I didn't get a good look at it. The headstock was not colored like in that dvd. He's always used a jazz bass as far as I know.

    Those Sandbergs sure are pretty. Never thought Id see Mendez not use a Fender. I think hes back to using Fenders again though, no?
