    Can anyone identify the manufacturer or model of this bass by the logo? It seems so familiar, yet I can't place it. It's being sold as an unknown "dragon bass"

    Picture of headstock and body below. Any help deeply appreciated.

    And the body.....

    Modulus' logo was an 8 point star-like object...that's no Modulus though.

    Is there a "Made in" stamp on the back of the headstock?

    I don't know the manufacturer, but that's actually quite awesome looking whatever it is.

    That looks like an Ibanez SR neck on a custom body.

    I thought so, too....but I didn't want to blindly buy this based only on pictures, and then find out it was some unusable Chinese-made decorative wall-hanger. On the off chance it's a well-made "clone" bass, I'd still love to know what brand they were trying to copy here!

    I don't think they were trying to copy anyone. Seems someone built this with the idea of making something unique. I've never seen the controls located behind the bridge like that. Makes sense to use an Ibanez neck. Making a body is easy. A good neck... not so much.

    What do they want for it?

    I know.....so cheap it's almost a no-brainer. But....I'm a little over-extended right now. If I just had some kind of idea of the quality, I'd pull the trigger anyway. It's a bound neck, also.

    Wow, Bongo! Great call...that's it exactly. Nice ebay technique, eh? Auction starts at 99 cents, but shipping to USA is $150.00!

    Looks like it's a KOREAN decorative wall hanger, after all!

    That logo reminds me of the neck inlay on the Ibanez Paul Gray bass.
