    Does anyone recognise the bass in this pic? I'm sure I know what it is... I just can't remember. An Ibanez, maybe?
    Nah. The headstock's a little odd. Argh, help me! :crying:

    The body doesn't look right, buy going by the neck/headstock it looks like one of those Aluminum necked Kramers.
    --Edit--
    Sorry I'm an idiot, it didn't look as if anyone had replied to it when I replied.

    There's one on eBay right now if you're interested...

    Kramer used to work for Travis Bean. Travis bean made guitars and basses that had a 1 piece solid aluminum neck. The bridge, body and pickups all bolted to the neck.

    Kramer left the company, and started Kramer Guitars (duh). He couldn't make 1 piece necks, because Travis has the patent on it, so he had to make those inferior bolt on aluminum necks.
