    From the logo on the headstock, it should be a bass made in the sixties in Italy from brand "Melody".

    sorry, I know the resolution of the photos is not very good. Looks like it could be the brand Melody, I will try to investigate a little more. If anyone has more information would be helpful. Thank you very much.

    Try to send your pictures to fetishguitars.com, I'm pretty sure they will be able to identify your bass.
