    I just bought a P-bass over the phone, picking it up tomorrow. In the meantime, have any of you heard of this brand? Nothing pops up on Google, but the flamey headstock and back of the neck have me curious. View attachment 3226329 View attachment 3226330

    Can’t really tell anything from the back. The headstock shot tells me the nut needs to be reset at a minimum. I’m also not sure about the small block of wood between the nut and the headstock face. The fret wire seems thin, and think it would be a good idea to check the fret levels and also for sprouts based on the apparent age. The tuner alignment and spacing seems a little off too.

    As good as a Squier? I don’t know about that. Squiers are pretty good basses. This one seems more like a cheaper knock off from the limited pics.

    Uh, yeah. Having owned a couple of basses in the past 20+ years, I noticed the nut was a little off...

    Here's the only other picture I received.
    For $100, I'm not worried. Just wondering if anyone knows who made "California" basses, or where.

    It’s considered rude to create a thread and then delete the content. Original post restored.
