Wierd bass, can you identify it?

  1. I say a bedouin soundclash video on tv, and the bassist was playing a wierd bass with the tone knobs on the upper horn of the body. I went to their site and it was listed at a 1976 jazz bass his father had bought, with two pickups, rosewood fretboard, and get this, he still uses the original black nylon strings :eek: Anywho, I tried to find some information on google and on here with no luck, but I thought it was neat, so maybe some of you have some pictures or information.

    I don't know about the basses but a friend of mine owns an Italia guitar which he likes (and he has over a dozen quality instruments). I have heard him play it and it sounded pretty good to me.
