    That is a Ukulele bass with rubber strings and a pickup. Sounds like an upright bass. I see some cheap China ones but they do sound good.

    I guess you’ve seen some copie of the original Guild Ashbory bass.
    This was introduced somewhere mid 80’s

    From the facts the might only interest me archive:

    The inventor of the ukulele bass is David Gomes of the Big Island of Hawaii. David is a gentleman and a scholar and loves to experiment with builds which is how it came to be. I visit him when we go out there for vacation. David has been building for over 40 years.

    I own two guitars and three ukuleles (no bass though) from him. Hawaiian slack key artist John Keawe plays his guitars.
