Default Unknown, Vintage Hollow Body Bass Guitar pickup

I just got this guitar for basically free and this thing is nasty and in awful shape, but (especially after it was cleaned up by me) it is a sweet looking guitar that I think can be made playable at best, and a good looking one to display at worst. The problem there is no ID marks anywhere on it and I have taken apart most of the guitar (pickups, controls, neck) to clean it. No ID marks. It seems like a MIJ guitar, but not sure!

Thanks a lot!

I'm no expert...but I agree - entry-level MIJ copy of old Gibson thinlines (there was a bass model).

Teisco mounted the controls like that on a lot of their guitars. Could be a very nice guitar once you get it all cleaned up.
