I don't know if this was a parts bass or a modded factory bass. There is no indication of manufacturer. I took this in, cleaned it up, set it up and removed Fender Precision waterslide decals (oh yeah!) and swapped the Fender neck plate for a generic unit. There are a lot of details so hang on! Body-unknown wood. There is scratching but no bad dings or chips. Wilkinson pickups with an unknown preamp. The controls are kind of a mystery. It seems they are volume, blend, mid?, and bass/treble (that's what what I think they are !) The "blend" will cut everthing off when turned completely counter clockwise. I still don't understand the layout. It's crazy hot and sounds pretty good. It's much more tame in passive mode without a huge drop in volume. I think the electronics were a mod. There is no battery box but a very tight route with a simple screwed on cover. String through body or top load the bridge. It has the strings that came on it. They are ok, a couple not cut really long enough for stringing through body. Neck-maker unknown. Jazz width. Capstan trussrod adjustment (trussrod works.) Wilkinson tuners. They look similar to Hipshots but not as good. They do the job. It's setup to Fender specs. Plays pretty good, the action is low (with little relief) and no buzzes. I'd keep it but I bought some stuff and have to find a way to pay for it! $100.00 plus shipping. It will ship in a double triangle box and packed well. Shipping shouldn't be that much.
