Another No Name (?) Old Bass

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, i know, in my case collecting old mysterious cheap stuff turned to addiction. But for 20€ i couldn't say no. 😂

This is the only pic i got. Any thoughts Mr. @Bassassin and other guys?

Looks like there was a discount on pots and switches... 😂

If you’re looking for a project I suppose €20 isn’t bad, it looks pretty corroded near the nut so I would make sure the truss rod works Sarakisof  or you won’t be able to adjust it and you might have trouble getting another neck to fit if it doesn’t 🙂

Don't think it was originally string through......

Not much to go on, have you tried taking the scratch plate off? might be something under there, or under the pick ups.

Wish i could. Seller is far away from my area and will ship it. Asks another 20-30 for packaging and shipping so will cost me about 50€. I'm skeptical because the value of the bass alone is less than shipping 🤣 , the fact that i dont like fretless so much and that i see something wrong about bridge / string / neck position there. Those bridge string holes from the back don't look to be in-line.

That's kinda cool, I'd pay €20 for it!

Going by stuff like the tuners & neckplate it's Korean rather than MIJ. Really interesting/cool pickups and looks like the defret hasn't been too much of a hack job, as far as I can tell. But no, don't remember seeing one the same before (and I'd probably remember!) and I couldn't say who made it & when, beyond maybe Samick or Cort & probably mid/late 70s.

Would like to see this pulled apart & cleaned up - I doubt all those switches & pots are original, but you never know. Anyway - buy it!

I'm in the same road with you but then there will be even less free space in the house for my son to put his LEGO's. 

But more instruments for him to play when he grows up, so I'll do it! 😋

Sounds good, after it’s all stripped down,  cleaned and working nice, it looks like it’ll  be fun to play

@Bassassin Did MIJ or MIK basses used string thru bridges back then?

Not usually - I have an early 80s Washburn which does, but it's not really the same sort of thing. Looking at this, hard to be sure but I think it's a mod - the bridge is poorly aligned & the string spacing's a bit too narrow for the neck, so it looks replaced. The ferrules are all over the place too.
