    Don't have more info, but it did bring memories. Back in early 70s I used to have Shaftesbury Ric 4001 copy for a while - it was VERY well made, and sounded just like a Ric. I'm sorry I let it go..was a good bass.

    Hmmm...I enjoy the vintage vibe. Very neat, although you should put that pickup cover back on it...it'd look uber-swank with it on. The humbuckers on the jazz copy look really fun too. Sorry I don't have any info, but those two basses definitely sit among the ranks of "very cool cheapies".
