    Not exact, but similar to a Guild Starfire I think. Looks like a bass version of a Gibson 335.

    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

    Cheers,
    Wallace

    PS: I wouldn't trust mods on that bass, but I sort of believe it can sound really fine

    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.
