    Holy crap that is a nice looking bass, Daahoud.



    Since the prototypes. And I think it's more of an egg.

  10. the battery doesn't work. As I measure 0.95 v.
    Also its Negative(-) pole has some green things inside out.

    Yeh, right. Food's better than toilet, ;). What happened to your bass ? converted to P ?

    That yellow bass is one of Leo Fender's prototypes from around late 75 into early 76. I believe that bass was left in his workspace at the G&L factory.

    Very beautiful Ray you got, great score!
