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.
