Hey everybody, I'm new here and I was wondering if any of you could offer some of your wisdom regarding a bass of mine. I bought this bass off of Curtis Ohlson (Ray Charles, Pete Escoveda, Pee Wee Ellis) and it has got to be the best Jazz bass I've ever played. He used this bass on both of his solo albums and he said when he got it the neck was really warped. The neck said it was made in 1966 so he assumed the body was as well. However, I was wondering if there was any way to verify this. Here's the only pictures I have for now (my wife just took our digital camera out of town!). If there's any experts on older jazz basses that can tell by looking at these if it resembles a 66 or not I'd appreciate it. Some other information: The space for the neck pickup is cut wider than the bridge pickup, i.e. there's extra room there. There are no holes for screws where I've seen the "finger" rest below the neck pickup on other 66 jazz basses. Also, there's nine holes for the screws of the pickguard, I haven't seen a pickguard style yet that fits it. The neck was made by a luthier in San Francisco named Doug Roomian and the pickups are active Seymour Duncans (that was just to satisfy any curiosiy, I realize that has no bearing on the original body!).
