    This bass is for sale local to me:

    The seller is unable to identify the maker. I've asked for more detailed pictures, but in the meantime, can anyone provide any additional information based on this admittedly less-than-ideal picture?

    Hmm...I really don't think that duvet cover ties the headboard and carpet together at all. What do you think, OLDGUY? :D

    More photos will probably be necessary to id. Show us the peg-box and the button. And maybe a side view.

    Is there a label on the inside?

    I suspected as much. I have asked the seller for additional pictures.

    Looks laminated.

    Fingerboard is probably ebony.

    The pickup appears to be a *David Gage Realist*.

    The machines might be those cheaper Chinese types, but it's hard to tell since we don't get a side shot.
