    Could someone please tell me what kind of bass Krist from Nirvana plays in the video for "In Bloom"?
    Its an electric bass that has a double bass headstock, it looks ****ing cool.

    I haven't actually seen the video. The only basses I have ever seen him use are Gibson Thunderbirds, Rippers, and RD Artists.

    He also used a Warwick Dolphin on the "You Know you're Right" sessions.

    i had planned to make a bass with a db headstock, but with my first being a ten-stringer, i thought that'd be hard to come by:D . krist's may be a custom job, and i imagine you could get a custom builder to make you one like it. i always thought that the standard fender headstock was supposed to be a profile of a db headstock. is it?
     
  4. Could be a GR bass or something.......or a wish.
     
  5. i think it might be an Ampeg scroll bass.
