Can anybody here identify the maker? It looks vaguely familiar, but i can't place it...
That's a Ritter.
ah - headstock does looks Ritter! but i thought Ritter only made nice basses...
Look at the bolts-Ritter is the only luthier I know of that will use so many that the neck joint contains more metal than wood.
On another note, I have always thought of Ritter basses as absolutely gorgeous (despite disliking the joint). There's something so ornately beautiful about them; they seem very European and decadent to me. If I were rich I would purchase a bunch of them just for show.
Actually, I quite like this bass - it looks very organic, a bit like a smoothed and stained lump of driftwood you might find on a beach.
It reminds me of the Spanish architect Gaudi's work - such as Casa Mila in Barcelona:
Yet another awesome Ritter that makes me even sadder that I will never get to own one.
