I just took delivery of this bass. I saw it for sale and just had to have it, in order to dissect it and try and get the parts to tell a story. I'm baffeled, bewildered, humored and more. I thought the body was a Charvel 1B, but the tone control (which has been removed and covered over, lol) is in-line with the volume......Scratch that. Psychadelic paint job gives me flashbacks. I see some nice grain underneath ..... The hippie paint will be removed soon, I hope. Bass, less strings, weighed in at 7lb 14oz. Long scale. I thought the neck was cut to resemble a Tele shape, but it looks manufactured that way. It had to have been added later, as the heel has been shaved about 1/16" shorter..... and the heel looks to have been originally rounded, as opposed to the old Fender square heels. Width is 2.42" (heel and pocket), so that's another mystery. Strange .....The Grover-type tuners (dunno if they're real or not..... no ID on them) look to be the only ones ever mounted , since the countersunk holes are the only ones back there. Cross-type truss nut at heel, which turns nicely. Pickup looks to be DiMarzio, but I've never dissected one of them...... A real cool feature is whoever mounted the pickups utilized cigarette butts as padding, along with a bit of foam. Don't smell to be "used"..... good deal. Jackson Bridge....... although it appears there have been others on there.... or a mute or something..... This'll take a while to check out. Please, please...... feel free to chime in any thoughts / comments regarding this bass. Oh, yeah..... neck heel says Riprock or Kiprock or Hiprock and shows "86". Looks to have been written with a sharpie. Photos for your entertainment.
