    Has anyone heard of these? My friend just bought one and I was hoping someone might know something about it. It has a telecaster shape and size body and is guitar scale but it's a bass. The bridge is really old style. It has a Fender style headstock. It has two big metal pickups. Erm... That's about all I can remember. Is it worth anything? HE paid £20 for it but it was dirty and had no strings and no bridge. It sounds pretty good considering but the pups are pretty weak.
     
  2. interesting- I saw a Jedson telecaster-style bass advertised in the London Loot a couple of years ago for £30, I wonder if it's the same one....

    Well I'm in that area (Hertforshire north of London) so it could be, they're not exactly prolific.
