    Ran across this odd bass on EBay. Anybody familiar with what this is?
    Is it hollow body or solid?

    It has a scroll headstock like an upright.

    Looks ALOT like a Gibson EB1 doesn't it?

    Any idea how much you think it should go for?

    By the way.

    Do you think it sounds like a Hofner, with that type of pickup arrangement? :cool:

    These were a MIJ Matsumoku offering, under various names. The one I am most familiar with is Apollo. In case you don't know, Matsumoku are considered good quality instruments from the 80's mostly. The more common better known brands were Electra and Westone.
