    I dont really know the model name but this bass really sounds good I just wish I knew more about it

    Bass: 5 String Burny Bass
    Body: 3 piece Ash
    Neck: 4 piece Maple Bolt-On
    Fretboard: Ebony
    Electronics: Active Master Volume, Treble,Mid,Bass boost/cut Pickup panner and Rear Pickup Volume
    Pickups: FGI Humbuckers
    Hardware: Gotoh tuners, Stock Bridge
    Serial: Cant find it

    Can anyone help me find info about my bass? Like the story behind it or any sort of information about my bass.

    heres a pic
  2. Its looking like a Ric body, but the headstock is all wrong

    I'm going to say its probably a custom. And a really cool looking one at that.

    The guy I bought the bass from said that this was a colaboration between Fernandes and Burny so I didnt think it was a custom but I couldnt find any evidence of its existence either
  6. Does it say Everly on the headstock or is it just me?
  7. Whatever it is, if you get tired of it, send it my way!

  8. It looks good for sure!
    Can we have more pics?

    Thanks for the info Imoh it was really good but it still does not point to what exact model my bass really is and what year it was made im going to try to remove the neck in search of a serial number but my estimation (judging on the feel and look of the wood) I would guess that it was an 80s-90s bass just not sure it might be older than that

    Guys update on the bass Ive removed the neck and found this:

    MBL and Z or 2 in marker on the Neck and the serial number RB-115DC


    And Im starting to believe on the notion that this bass is custom cause look on whats written on the body where the neck goes ORDER MADE


    And heres more pic of the bass although its in pieces
