Hello everyone! I've just joined this board, simply to get an answer to a question I've had burning in the back of my mind for years now: Is my bass an Ibanez? Or a Kramer? Or what is it??!! I bought it as a pile of parts some 20+ years ago and had it re-assembled by my local guitar shop. At the time, they told me the neck was bent and had put a shim in to counter this. It's not the greatest bass in the world to play (it has a fret buzz problem on the neck towards the body, and one of the machine heads has a part missing) but it sounds nice when amped up. Also it has a natural finish, which I love. There is no brand name on the headstock, as this had been scratched away before I bought it. The only other identifying information on the bass is the code K801204, underneath which is written Made in Japan on a chromed neck plate. Does anyone know of a website I can go to check the number on the neckplate? Alternatively, does anyone have an idea what make my bass might be?
