Hello. Which model is it? A Combo, or a Joe Maphis model, or a Celebrity? The first two should be Semi-Hollow, where the last one should be all Hollow-Body.

Combo:

Joe Maphis (yes, these are partly hollow, they just don't have an F Hole.)

Image

Celebrity I (these came as the Celebrity I, II, and III. They don't all have the same specifications, and they don't all look exactly the same.)

Image

Perhaps it was actually shaped like a Ventures model, though? I've seen a few Japanese-built types like that, such as this worn Morales model (which is not a reissue.)

- Austin
1966 Ventures II (German Carved, B670.)
1970s "Not a Blues Bender" Bodies: 2.
1976 Brass Rail Deluxe #10.
2013 Fender Pawn Shop Bass VI.
