Does anyone know what bass is imitating this replica?
Not exact, but similar to a Guild Starfire I think. Looks like a bass version of a Gibson 335.
I don't know but i want it!
Nothing on headstock or in the body ?
Here's the head
and the body
It looks like a hybrid between the Gibson EB2D and the Gretsch 6072 "Country Gentleman" Bass
That is one cool looking bass!
Thanks Hillerup! It was made buy an argentinian luthier it seems, and someone is offering it for 120 bucks!
GET IT GET IT GET IT GET IT!
May be I'll try it today... Does anyone know why is there a hole on the right upper part of the body? What its spposed to be there?
The hole might have been for a pickup switch or a volume knob.
Machineheads surely don't look like Gibson-oriented items. So do knobs on its side, lookin' quite tweaked out. Thus a pickup selector could have reasonably been formerly up on the horn, then somehow moved to control plate area
PS: I wouldn't trust mods on that bass, but I sort of believe it can sound really fine
Get it, just get it!
Thanks, the owner told me it was the pickup selector but it doesn't work anymore, does it cost a lot to solve that?
No, especially if you know how to solder. Then you'll only need the switch, otherwise you'll need to pay a little extra for the work but even then I'd say it won't cost too much.
