My uncle just picked up a bass from a thrift shop that is of unknown origin. It has two script 'A' s on the headstock and the whole thing is natural wood color (maple-ish) with a P-bass like pickup setup.

Anyone seen one like this before? If I can get him to send me a picture I will post it.

Maybe it's a custom build from an alcoholic who wishes to remain anonymous.


Seriously though, never seen anything like it.

The only brand i can think of that used a script 'A' in their name, is Aria.

Their headstock logo has changed a bunch over the past 30-40 years, though, and i've only seen the entire word, Aria, spelled out.

A pic would help.

Other 'A' brands that can be ruled out (probably): Alembic, Amazing, Ampeg, Airline, AXL, Artinger, Antelierz, Azola, and Antiniotzai...


...still i kinda doubt it's any of those.

Pictures or it remains forever a mystery.

It sounds like it's a bass with two script 'A' s on the headstock and a natural wood color (maple-ish) with a P-bass like pickup setup to me.

Pictures man, else we cannot help you.

Looks like an Alvarez logo to me. I didn't know they made basses.

Rump, a P-bass delivers a rump in the sound such that, similar to the rump on an African American woman, it is the highlight of the tone.
