Have you ever seen one of these before?

Never seen one before, but a quick Google found that Bradley seems to have made a whole range of copies back in the day - including the Ibanez Soundgear copy you've got there. http://en.allexperts.com/q/Guitar-Ge...-4003-Bass.htm
From that discussion page:
Bradley guitars were the "house brand" for Veneman Music, a metro DC based chain and later superstore, and their mail order division, Music Emporium. The brand began around 1970 and was a successor to the KAPA guitar brand, most of which were made/assembled in Hyattsville, MD.Bradleys were made by Fuji Gen Gakki and probably also Matsumoko, Arai and other builders around the Nagoya, Japan area. Bradleys ranged in quality from starter instruments to very high quality jazz boxes ,depending on when and where made.In the 70s and early 80s Bradleys were imported from Japan. Later on in the 90s, the guitars were made in Korea. The name comes from Bradley Boulevard, a road in Bethesda, MD near an early Veneman location. The Venemans were among the pioneers in bringing product in from Japan. While Bradley guitars can be pretty decent, especially some of the hollowbodies they generally aren't in the same class as the better MIJ Tokai Love Rocks, later set neck Ibanez guitars etc.

Ok yeah I was wondering if it was a copy of another bass.
I knew that they were the house brand for Venemen's Music.
Just wondering if anyone else out there has one.
