I play the life out of of it. Even did a gig with a KISS tribute band a couple of years ago.
Very cool bass, it’s lineage is a mystery to me but your Olde English 800 can gives me a brain ache and brings back memories probably better left buried.
Way to go. You're dismissive of Steve's livelihood and work. Many people who put them down have never played one. I know Wishbass isn't for everyone, but mine play well, sound amazing and have been very affordable. It seems you're just going for a cheap laugh. You make a very bad impression. .
Any pictures of the headstock?
Anytime I see pickup covers with four silver screws in the corners, the first thing I think is China
Seems doubtful that whoever made that (looks home crafted to me) would have left it unbranded...I’d look under the pickups and inside the neck pocket for insight.
Looks very cool, btw.
There are now.
Thanks. Not bad for a freebie. This is a pic of the pocket. It came open with no badge.
Neck pocket. Wrong location. My bad.
That body looks like it’s one piece of wood?
That would steer me away from thinking Chinese factory.
 2 pieces of wood? Looks like a seam below the bridge.
The wood grain looks great.
Chinese factories have been big on paulownia wood and that doesn’t look like paulownia
No worries. Next step would be removing the pickups, and the neck.
I will most likely start at pickups. I had my guy here at and restrung it. There are some pics at the beginning of this string showing the neck it is screwed on.
Set and restrung
Anything in the control cavity or neck pocket?
also, anyone want an unopened Billy beer?
I posted pics of the cavity earlier in this thread yesterday.
Looks like a homemade body with repurposed neck. I don't recognize the headstock shape but hard to tell by the pics. Nice body!
This is easily the biggest, heaviest bass I have toted around. It is a solid piece of wood.
Need a different angle or lighting?
My back hurts just looking at it.
The headstock reminds me of a Jon Hill bass. He is working Bootleg Guitars. Don't know if he could help, but it might be worth asking. He used to be Ohio based in his early days.
