    I think it's Hofner. I've only seen one of those up close, back in 1991.

    That looks suspiciously like a First Act Logo on the headstock. ImageUploadedByTalkBass1403342805.339434.

    People said the same thing about Geddy Lee during their "Kimono Phase" in the '70s. :facepalm: Sadly, this was often reinforced when he'd hit those high-register vocal notes.

    It's Hofner's model 186. Made between 1971-73.

    The one I played when I was 16 had a VERY fast neck on it. It was likely the first bass I just had to have. I didn't get that, but instead bought a Fender JP90 from the same store a year or so later.
