    What kind of bass guitar is this?

    I picked up an old bass guitar yesterday.
    The previous owner didn't know anything about it and so do I.
    There are no serial numbers or anything on it and I was wondering if anyone here can help me identify it.

    Thanks,
    Eric.

    And how about the sound?

    Didn't have the chance to try it with a good bass amp.
    When I use it on my HH Electronics amp it get's kinda distorted.

    Is this too bad?

    Yes, it was really bad. But the problem could also be in my amp.
    It doesn't always sound good with my guitar either, on the lower frequencies.
    I wil try it in another amp soon.

    Judging from the headstock, it looks kinds like a Peavey. Judging from it having only 3 strings, it may have been played by the Presidents of the U.S.A.("Lump").

    Looks like some old generic, Korean knock-off, or an overseas budget Bass.
    My old drug addicted supor, from a couple years ago, gave me his prized guitar:
    A no-name telecaster copy, that i could only guess was a reject from an old Sears catalogue.
    I think it had five strings.
