    Sorry man, I'm just messing with you. I have no clue what kind of bass it is. Upload a photo if you've got one.

    Just a suggestion because sometimes this weird stuff has value in a particular market, (i.e. - some devoted Bears fan with a rathskeller/bar);

    Contact the Public Relations guy for the Bears, tell them what you found and see if someone on the Bears was a bass player or someone like the Fridge owned it, (he looks like a typical fatass guy who tried the bass!).

    It's the PR guy's job to handle this - they love to do this kind of stuff and may even ask to buy it from you. It could have been something from the Bear's "Super Bowl Shuffle" video.

    If it sounds like a million bucks to you, I wouldn't let go of it. Those football players have stupid money but sometimes they spend it on junk.
