MUSEUM SALE - 1960's Folk Art Beatle Bass - Homemade

Image of MUSEUM SALE - 1960's Folk Art Beatle Bass - Homemade

From the Shane Speal Collection - This homemade Beatle Bass was handmade in the late 1960's by an unknown builder. It features a vintage DeArmond toaster pickup.

I purchased this with hopes of expanding the museum collection to include modern folk art instrument examples outside the cigar box realm. (The current Cigar Box Guitar Museum simply has more than enough antique instruments dating back to the late 1800's to fill several museums!) I am parting with this in hopes that one person will fix it up and have it play again.

This bass is being sold as-is, hence the low price. It will need work to make it playable again.
