    I was watching a television show called Flight of the Conchords last night and one of the two musicians is holding a bass...can you Identify it?

  2. Looks like a Westone body with a Peavey neck and home-made pickguard & pups.

  3. Is that show an off shoot of Borat?

    New Zealand! those Kiwis are righteous cobblers That bass could've been a table top and a crystal radio the day before, all bets are off on what it might have been!

    I'm guessing it might be a 1970's "Kavkaz" bass, made in the USSR.

  8. The amount of obscure information available from TBers is truly astonishing!
