About a year ago, a fellow came into our local music shop trying to sell a bass. It looked pretty crummy (still does) but the action was ok and I gave him $70 bucks for it. I have played it out a few times and call it my grunge bass. My question is does anyone know what type of bass it is. Here is the description: Four strings, body shape is similar to Epiphone EB-O or EB-3 SG with double cutaway, one pickup, volume and tone control only, Aria Pro II tuners, and the following on the head- CSB-380 Model. It says made in Japan on the back and has a 7 digit number also. The young guy who had it had tried to paint it and all traces of the original finish are gone. It has a bolt-on neck with four bolts. It really looks terrible, but it plays in tune and the action is actually ok. This is the perfect bass to hand someone when they want to sit in! Does anyone know what this bass is? I suspect Epiphone but I do not know where they are made. Thanks for any ideas.
