    I need some help in figuring out what kind of bass I got (I just picked it up about 6months ago, it was cheap and I REALLY wanted to learn to play)it's all black has schaller (sp?) pickups on it, the only discernable mark on it is the Eagle emblem (has an eagle with it's wings stretched out over the word "Eagle").....I've tried looking all over the web to see if there was a manufacturer or re-seller that had anything like it (man, looking through alot of web pages makes the mind numb) and I cannot find anything (my guess is that this bass is an el-cheapo from Fingerhut or something). Anyone got any ideas?

    You might want to try going to the Fender site. Sign up for their forum " FDP" there....go to the bass forum and ask that question there. The moderator Steve seems to be a collector of basses and if he doesn't know....he probably knows someone who does.

    I hope that helps!

    I hope it's okay to mention another forum in here :)

    Well....a picture would help....:) Is there any other info you can give about it? I have heard of Eagle brand instruments...I believe from Sweeden. If you have one of those..I would hang on to it...:)

    Deynn, I do not have a picture....yet, will try to get one up here this week......it doesn't look like the one you posted, I saw those when trying to look on the web for the manufacturer and I wish my bass was that nice.....I think it's a japanese made bass....it does have Schaller p pickups (i think they are "p" style, still new to the bass/instrument scene:->)that I know because I had it apart to see if there was any other discernible marks and there was this little label that said "schaller electronics, west germany 11/95".

    The main reason I'm asking to find out more about my bass so I can determine what to sell it for, as I'm looking to buy a Ibanez Left-hander.

    Chrissy, thanks for the info on that forum, I will give that a try. ANY info is better than not knowing :)

    Dot....keep us posted on what you find out. Sometimes it can be fun searching for those odd basses....and sometimes, just plain frustrating! :D
