    Bought a purple bass from a yard sale. Guy says he played it in the 70s. Has 'Premier' logo on it. I can't find anything like it online at all. Any info would be appreciated!

    You would have better luck asking about this in Basses instead of Ask The Berklee Bass Dept.

    It's an inexpensive bass probably made in China or Indonesia in the 90's. You would need to string it up and see if the neck is good. If it's good (not bowed or warped) check to make sure the truss-rod works, make sure the electronics work, and if that all checks out and it's cheap (like under $150) it would be worth dealing with. Judging from the pics there are marks on the frets from string wear - if the wear is deep (actually grooved) it probably isn't worth dealing with. If the frets are only discolored and not grooved - they can be cleaned and probably have life left in them.

    The fact that it has no strings is disheartening. Basses are made to wear strings at all times. The neck could be bowed or arched. Gonna need to string it up to see if the neck is unaffected and maybe adjust the truss rod (if it has one).
