I'm going to check out this bass this afternoon that a pawn shop is claiming to be a Roth 3/4 and includes a K & K preamp & pickup.
It is listed for $500 and has some cracking on the body & fingerboard separation.

I'm an electric bass player interested in DB and there are a few rockabilly & bluegrass songs in my current project that really call for an upright and only sound "ok" on electric.
I have been doing some research, but have only played a few DBs - can anyone tell from the photos if there is a chance that this is a bass worth investing in/getting restored?
