Joey de Maio's bass

What bass does Joey de Maio (Manowar) use?

It seems to be a Rickenbacker 4004 Laredo

But there's not Joey's name in rickenbacker's site...

It loks like his Rick is just a customized 4001 or 4003 to me, but I can't find a pic detailed enough to make it out clearly.
I don't understand why he has his strings crammed together like that, but perhaps he just doubles the E and A strings, or something like that, beats me!
I wouldn't do something like that to a beautiful Rick, but apparently that set up works for the basslines he plays, weird!

Maybe he uses a guitar nut... and guitar-like strings (0.80 to 0.25)
