Your post was out-of-sight when I was typing mine!
I think I found it! 60s Kent.. Basin Street?
so, a modded Kent 534 Basin St.
The Newport right there to it. amazing.
Regardless of its identity and the mods made on it, I really like this one.
Yep. Nailed it. Good job.
Neck pickup and bridge are Gibson...from an EB-0/1/3 or more likely a Kalamazoo.
wow, That would be awesome. The bridge looks like the original pickup but obviously moved..The neck pickup definately looks like the Gibson "mudbuckers" im seeing on Google.. I guess ill have to open it up..Thanks!
And an un-modded Ken Basin St goes for $299. Just for reference. No affiliated.
Kent Basin St Bass Guitar, 1960's, Japan, 34" Scale, Very Cool
Im glad you mentioned Gibson EB.. It became obvious to me what the modder was going for.

I ended up buying this bass. Its a real beast, I love it. Havnt heard the mudbucker due to a broken mini switch, and the nut was missing so I just have one floating there precariously that i happened to have in a parts box, but good enough to test. Intonation might be spot on! low action, beefy monster, solid. Huge neck!! like half of a baseball bat!
Very cool. I don’t claim to be an expert on vintage Japanese basses but I do like them and I don’t recall seeing that Basin St model before. My first thought was that someone was copying, or trying to, the Ovation Magnum. Glad she plays and sounds good!
oh right the Ovation Magnum with the monster neck pickup! good call.. thanks man
I was scrolling down to post the same. Looks like An homage to the magnum
that's it -
Looks like you have the right amps to play it through! I have a '76 B-15N and all my 60's era basses sound great through it.
