    It would be easier to tell if the picture quality weren't so poor.

    The body looks like some kind of Hamer, Charvel or Jackson. The fingerboard looks like a Jackson or a Hamer. The headstock in one shot looks like a BC Rich, but from another angle it looks like a Hamer.

    It's 1980's and pointy, whatever it is.

    Anyone out there have the video, or remember if Mr. 'arris played a bass besides one of his P's on the World SlaveryTour?

    Here is a picture of my early 80's USA Hamer that you can compare it to. I have been considering selling it.
