    Looks like a Fender Jazz that someone modified the headstock.

    That is definitely not a Fender Jazz, the headstock couldn't have been trimmed that way from the looks of it. I am going to guess just some cheap imitation brand.

    jazz body, and it may have been possible to cut that from a 70's style jazz bass headstock but probably not. It's probably one of the hundreds of jazz bass knockoffs. Take the neck off and look in the neck pocket. If it wasn't painted over during the paint job there may still be telltale signs of the maker.

    ok, this could go down as one of the worst ideas for a "paint job" I have ever seen on a bass. Looks like someone see it

    ...just saying

    Not a Fender neck - don't know about the rest of the bass. Ditto on the paint job.
  7. FYI.. here is the translation from the text on Bablefish:

    Bass Guitar, brand unknown.

    The bass guitar is still working fine. But is painted black and white splashed with a video clip.
    The paintjob is done intentionally sloppy. But all the hardware and neck are neatly taped off or removed before painting.
    Prima is playable in current condition, but it can also completely refurbish itself.

    thanks for the feedback guys.. I was guessing its a cheap-ass imitation brand too but it might just be some great sounding bass, never know ^^

    Oh my...
    So, what they are saying is that they meant to do this?

    I wonder if when they were done they stepped back and said, "wow, that is exactly what we were going for"?

    I need some basses that will do this.

    Looks like it's been under a pigeon roost.
