    Okay, someone is handing me over a 8 and 4 string.

    But the guy said the 4 string is from all the way back to the 1906. Personally I think its BS. But it does look pretty old. It needs some fixing up too. He said it makes a static sound when he plugs it in. I think it might be the wiring, but its a pretty old bass. What you guys think? Oh and I will take pics of it as soon as I get them.

    Thanks.

    1906 is BS. Leo Fender came out with the first electric bass in the 50's. 51 oe 52, I believe.

    Edit- what brand is it?
