12-String Basses on Magazine Covers

Discovering a 12-string bass on a magazine cover is a rare treat. Here are a few…

Pop Rock Special, Fall 1980 edition, with Tom Petersson and the Hamer double-cutaway B12A.


Hit Parader, December 1980 edition, with Hamer B12A. By the time this issue was published, Tom Petersson was no longer a member of Cheap Trick.


Kerrang!, April 13, 1991 issue, with Doug Pinnick and his left-handed Hamer B12S.

Cheap Trick Newsletter!, February 1981, with Pete Comita and his zebra-striped Hamer Standard.

The newsletter also includes a live concert shot of this same bass.
