Easy come, easy go! So, you know the thief too?I was given this Pbass today. For free. Gratis.
Headstock says "Wagenvoort - hand crafted made in Holland".
Anyone know this brand? I ain't never heard of it!
Anyway, lovely birdseye neck, striped body. Seems to be an all Maple thing. EMG pups, Badass (original!) bridge, Schaller tuners. The bass is heavy but oozes quality.
I have not yet plugged it in. The strings on it are at least two decades old.
EDIT: THIS IS A STOLEN BASS!
I contacted the builder Bert Wagenvoort, and posted a pic on FB. Turned out the original owner is someone I know through Facebook! Arjan is picking her up tomorrow. It was stolen from him 28 years ago, he has pics to prove it. Of course, there wasn't any doubt in my mind to hand it back to him.
