    I came across this video and was wondering what make the bass was. Just curious. Any ideas? There is a good shot at 1:54

    I didn't see a good view of the bass guitar anywhere in the video but I really enjoyed this band's rendition of Alabama! Funny video because they got this teenage front man what's really good hair makes me jealous and then when the cameraman starts panning across the Band my they're all these old fogeys made me laugh

    The shape and construction are reminiscent of Matsumoku. I found some very similar Vantage and Westone but so far none with these inlays.

    It looks to be a p with the 2 knobs. The pickup guard confuses me too. Is it a vintage bass? Who does block inlays like that? The bridge is very distinctive too.

    Looks like a Daion Bass with an added cover over the pickup.

    It kinda looks like an Aria too but I haven't found anything with the same bridge.
