Wow---that is really odd. I really doubt it is a Lyon. Body shape looks like a different brand and someone put on a Lyon heel plate and maybe a Lyon neck which I doubt as the headstocks on Lyons are never blank anyway. Also note the heel plate comes right up to the edge of the bass's neck joint--not quite right there either. Too, the serial number indicates 1993 date (NOT 1983), but the 1991 date written into the wood negates the heel plate being an original part of the bass. I guess I could be wrong, but that just does not look right for a Lyon at all to me. I think it is a mix and match parts bass.
Anyone else have a suggestion?
