    Hi, first post here..
    I have a question regarding a (no-name) hollow body I owned in the mid-70's. Anyone who has information about what it can be, pickups were probably Teisco (or copies). I have googled, but I have not found any for example Teisco, Kawai, Aria, Kasuga, Hondo, Shaftesbury, Ganson that looks like.

    Is that the original finish from the 70ies?

    No, my bass was some red burst, the attached picture is not the actual one. Apart from the color, it looked like this.

    I've seen those pickups in old Silvertone basses made by Teisco.

    In fact the only picture I found of the actual bass that I owned is this one, with plastic vinyl on it and rearranged pots/switch..
