    Friend of mine pulled this bass and amp out of his cellar, can't identify the bass. No brand name anywhere on it, his dad bought it off CL a few years ago to try and learn it but ended up giving up.

    If it's nothing special we were just gonna sell it but I'd really like to be able to identify it and google has been no help.

    Do whatever you want with it. That was my first bass and I still have mine. I painted naked ladies on it in 10th grade
     
  6. Probably won't get much to sell it....i'd keep it and jam low end riffs. :bassist:

    Is yours a short scale like mine? I recently picked up one on eBay that looks exactly the same except it has chrome knobs. I paid $75 for it. Fretboard is a dark as ebony - I wonder what it is?

    Dunno how old the strings are but it sounded great at a blues/jazz jam tonight :) . Someone did a good job on slotting the nut (bone?) low and I was able to get the action fairly low.

    they're pretty good basses for the price range they tend to fall in, just hold on to it and play it
