What is this bass?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by jeepsk8, Mar 30, 2015.


  1. Any idea what this is? I was thinking the body resembles a Fernandes but the headstock doesn't. 2015033095122331. 2015033095122331. 2015033095122805.

    sorry, blinded by those strings... ...the body reminds me of 80s/90s Carvin, but not that headstock, and I don't think that fretboard dot pattern, either, looks Japanese, wild guess. Headstock is similar to Jay Turser shape. Bolt on, set, or through?

    Oh, forget Carvin, unless the butt cutout is a mod, didn't notice that before.
     
  5. Thanks for the reply! I haven't gone to see it, trying to figure out if it is worth my time. I would like to ID it before I decide. Besides, they want $125 for it, and I am a Jeepsk8!
     
  6. I think it's a franken bass, the headstock definitely looks like a Turser but that body looks like a Fernandes or a knock off of one. The finger board intrigues me because of the dot placement, I can't find a Turser with that pattern. I dunno...

    The headstock is similar to a JT but slightly different shaped and reversed from a JT (mirrored). My guess is that it's a no name bass from a factory in Asia, they pop up all the time in various shapes on craigslist, or that it's an otherwise cheap bass with some home modifications.

  8. I did find one JT 5 string bass with the reversed swoop on a righty but with normal dot placement. I am intrigued but not sold on the price. Those strings are hideous :(

    I think $125 would be better spent elsewhere.
