    Im gonna guess that Neutrik is just the brand of the jack but thats just a guess

    It looks just like a Steinberger clone.

    Yep, Neutrik is the locking input jack with the red "button" on it.

    There is nothing more repulsive than a rusty bridge.

    It's Bill and Ted's!
  7. It looks like a Hohner or Cort Steinberger clone to me.
  8. This one would be a good contender for the "what bass is best to hit someone over the head with" thread! :scowl:

    The neutrik locking jack looks like it was put on there a while after the bass was made. The jack was put in the right plce for early Steinbergers... The hole in the center of the bass makes me think that it was meant originally to take the swivel-strap holder that was found on early Steinies.

    The one thing is that it has a truss rod, which weren't found on many Steinies, except on eir bolt on ones and Hohner copies.

    My guess is that it might be an early Steinberger Proto-type or a Kramer.

    I like the fact that the seller never once mentions the word knob.

    :hyper: Now that alone makes it worth the $99.

    Imagine how cool you'd look on stage, swivelling it round on it's strap in a Billy Gibbons stylee? :meh:

    Ok, you're right, you'd look a complete ass-munch! :scowl:

    I own a Cort 'Steiny' copy and my bridge doesn't look like that. Mine also has a 'P/J' pickup config. My jack is on the side and not in the rear. Mine also has a passive/active switch. My headstock doesn't have those 3 Allen screws. That thing looks horrible!! The pickups are so far apart!
