    This is when someone buys a cheap bass and then takes out everything that isn't attached and puts in new parts. Some say, "Why not take that money and buy a nice bass?" Well, no one is selling a bass with this combination of things. And it sounds nice. Disclosure: in order to place the pickup in this bass I had to disconnect and splice the wires connecting the two halves.

    Nice shielding in back cavity! A plus
    Is this now only active or is it actively/ passive?

    It is passive also. It's one of those nice basses you forget that it's plugged in and the amp is still on, because it ain't buzzin'

    All my Glockenklangs are shielded, and grounded to the shield, which is grounded to the jack.

    How does it play and how low is the action? What width and profile is the neck?

    These questions are difficult for me actually. getting neck profile information on a discontinued ancient bass neck. They say it is a GSR4 neck and the measurements for that are
    width at nut 41, width at last fret 62, thickness at first fret 21, thickness at 12th fret 22, radius is 305mmR / 12"
    Of course I don't know what I would do with that information. I know how it feels in my hands but it doesn't seem to have a nickname. People seem to call it a nice neck. On Talkbass if you search GSR100 neck there are people who like it. (but is it the same model?)
    As for action I think I am equally unhelpful. I put some of those Labella 1954s on it and those strings just hung out in outer space. And then some nice smaller gauge strings I got the action real nice and low. It was like fretting speed-riffs on a guitar. It was a bass I go to if I want to play fast and crazy. So the action has been varied. Sorry I can't be more help.
