    I just glanced at the picture on the video preview and thought "Henry Rollins played 12 strings?" :)

    And another big favorite, The Blue Things, from Lawrence, KS. Val Stoecklein on 12 string rhythm, most likely a Rick.

    And for a super-interesting effect, Josh Homme has a 9-string, with the G, B and high E doubled. A 9-string.

    I know it's an acoustic but it does have a pickup in it.
