    Neck pickup and bridge are Gibson...from an EB-0/1/3 or more likely a Kalamazoo.

  13. 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!

    Looks like you have the right amps to play it through! :thumbsup: I have a '76 B-15N and all my 60's era basses sound great through it.
