    Hi: John Doe is currently playing with Dave Alvin et al and the Flesheaters, and not using his usual
    62 P-bass. Anybody know what this bass is?

    Many thanks!

  2. The headstock looks like a BC Rich.

    Hi: Yeah, unusual headstock, but pickup configuration is different from BC rich's of that era (I assume 70s 80s). My guess is some kind of Ibanez perhaps. Check out this pick of an Ibanez headstock

    It's definitely a BC Rich neck.

    The headstock is definitely BC Rich, can't tell for sure but in the video the bass looks to be neck-thru, which would likely make the bass a custom shop BC Rich. Can't be sure though.
