    Hey, recently i've been listening to a band called "the Black Lips" and i came across this photo of their bassist. He's known for using a hoffner bass but this obviously is not one, i would really like to know what it is though, i now the picture is blurry but its the best i can find! Thanks in advance

    That pic is blurry, but it kind of looks like an old Hagstrom.

    Great band; I've also seen him play one of those $200 gretch basses as well...

    RIP Dark Horse strings
    The pickguard doesn't look right for an H1, but it might be a Kent, Futurama, Selmer, or one of the other brands Hagstrom built for.
