That appears to be a string bass. Assuming standard tuning:

Given the position of the bow, and the position of his left index finger, he appears to be playing the D string in this image.

Yes, it appears like. The bow is definitely on the G and the index
— on the G — is hidden by the middle finger that is on the D.

FYI
The term for this instrument among musicians is simply bass, or
eventually double bass. 
String bass is only to distinguish it from
the brass bass instru
ments in a concert band, such as tubas.

this guy's got legs for miles!  i'm not much of a people shooter, but this one caught my attention.  love the low angle and wide angle distortion, very creative combo.

Thanks nomad.

At 5' 10" it is easier to go closer to the ground
than to take the shot from above. :P
