    I was watching this rock doc about the UK band Anti-Nowhere League and was wondering if anyone can identify this bass. the headstock is shaped like an Ovation but cant make out the logo. looks like a p/j setup with a unique pickguard

    reverse p pickup, chrome or brass bridge cover, metal surround on the j pup, double cutaway with bottom horn like an Ibanez Eagle, interesting cursive headstock inlay

    3 knobs, 3 slider switches, & jack on the control plate. looks like brass tuners and possibly brass nut.

  4. Don't know why and how, but my first reaction to this thread was a google search for eagle bass and then - after the results - for bc rich eagle bass.
    At least the headstock reminds me a lot of some mij bc rich designs of the early 80s - same tuners as the Yamaha BB basses.

    the tuners look like maybe schallers? the metal piece around the bridge pickup and black with gold/brass made me think Yamaha BB bass as well!

    the body looks like a modified Yamaha but the neck is something else. this video is from 1982 if that helps. heres a pic of an 80's Yamaha

    the truss rod cover and headstock inlay reminds me of an early 80s Cort knockoff

    That’s a blast from the past: urban aspirine! They were the top of what we used to call beer-punk. I had to go look and they are still performing! And no hint of growth in their mental age at all.

    can’t find any other pic’s of that bass though. It probably didn’t last long?

  12. Reminds of of a Shergold Modulator, with Hayman 4040 pickups in it.

  14. One the most shocking punk lyrics of yesteryear but funny all the same. Check out So What!

    Shergold-ish, though I'm not aware of any that look like that bass. Especially given the headstock.

    That bass looks heavily customized/frankenbassed to me. I doubt you can find a single model that will explain what you see.

    I'd rest easier if somebody could just ID that logo on the headstock...

    Makes you wonder what is the point, from a maker's perspective, of having a completely illegible logo. What is that? TL? JP? TJ?
