: Thanks for the tip. They didn't have ANY samicks though.
: : : Hi
: : : I had to buy this crappy old Samick bass once when my regular bass got broken right before a gig. Anyhoo, the guy who sold it didn't know what model it was, except that it was a samick.
: : : So, now I'm trying to identify it so if I need to buy parts for it, I know what I have, and I thought someone here might be able to help me with this.
: : : It's a shortscale (22 fretts) with a pickupsetup as shown in the picture which hopefully work. Three knobs. Four strings. The tuningtwist thingies (sorry, english isn't my language ;) go 90 degrees out from the body on both sides. And it's passive electronics...I think. And it got a little cover over the trussrod.
: : : The shape of the body is regular fender-like, not an exact replica, but it got those pointy horns where one is longer then the other.. actually, compared to a fender, the bottom one is shorter then the fenders.
: : : Ok, that's all I can think of in terms if identifying marks.
: : : I couldn't find it on Samicks US page anyway...
: : : Any help apreciated.

: : try music store websites like www.musicaiansfriend.com to see if they might sell the one you have. good luck.
