I am a relatively new bass player (I played rhythm guitar
in high school over 25 years ago, then didn't play anything
until last year). I recently acquired a Supro Pocket Bass in
excellent condition. It has an extremely short scale (about 25 inches}
so it is very easy for me to play with my short fingers. My
guess is that it was made in the early to mid-60's. Does
anyone know anything about this model? By the way, it has
a very interesting sound. The neck pickup has a fairly deep
sound (like my '68 Gibson EBO, but not as much so), and there
is a pickup built into the bridge which gives it a jangly
acoustic sound. The two knobs are wired as volume and blend,
but I'm not sure if that is the original configuration or if
it was re-wired by someone.
