    I was watching an old country music show last night called Billy Walker's County Carnival. I could not get a clear look at the bass but it had a body like an "SG" or EBO, and a headstock like a Fender. Any ideas? I would guess this show was from 1968 to 1972?

    I bet it was a Kalamazoo.

    Gibson released some cheaper line brands around that period, and one was Kalamazoo. I've seen a few basses that fit your description.

    I'll see if I can find a photo.
