    Some sort of 70's lawsuit. Most of them are mysteries anyways.

    the sivertone looks close other than it looks like a pair of rocker type switches and mine had a single toggle in the same spot. prolly was some sort of japeneses knock off. funny thing is i don't remember buying selling or even owning this gear.lol gotta love the 70s lol

  13. Hi.

    A bit hard to tell from the pics, but it looks like the bass has "staple" pickups?
    The same ones that Höfner used.

    If it does, my guess would be Burns, as most of the copies had their own pickups AFAIK.

    Regards
    Sam

    That is a Harmony-something or other, also known as the Aria A-200...
