Bought this off craigslist for 30 bucks, rolling the dice on a project/beater bass with character. The guy I bought it from found it in a warehouse. Help me identify this thing. I originally thought this thing was going to be a Pbass but when I got there I looked under the covers and saw this...
The neck is bent like a banana, made of an interesting wood, and has no marking on the bottom or the headstock. The frets look pretty good but I haven't tried to adjust truss rod yet. The nut is cut uneven and is a goner.
The body has a nice looking sunburst finish, very even and natural wear along the edges, and no markings in the neck pocket or on the pots. I took off the pickup plate cover and the thumb rest for the pictures. Someone previously tried to fill in the bridge plate cover but did a poor job.
Please take a look at the pictures and help me out with identity, history, suggestions on what to do to make this thing live again (I am up for anything).
Let me know if you would like to look more closely at something or have any questions. Thanks!!!
