Thanks Peter!
And Pete!
I rescued this bass from a right handed player, the nut/strings where flipped (good for the lefty reverse players) and there was a strap button on the lower horn not to mention it was filthy dirty, so bad that the neck and body where stuck together even after I removed the screws.

Here it is... if it wasn't for the close-up pics to show a bit of wear-and-tear, you'd think this was a brand new bass! https://reverb.com/item/7378102-lefty-i ... 1986-black

Nice to see the original tuners and strap buttons still in place! But that bridge is a replacement (as is Paulo's KickAss, obviously). Both bridges appear to use the same set of screw holes though. Those tuners were a nice upgrade to the more Fender-ish open back tuners on the earlier maple-board RB650.

Spot on, Jeroen!

The original bridge is in my parts box, the one you see is a bit of a hybrid: the base is newer, while screws, springs and 'barrels' are original. As far as I remember, the holes were a perfect match.
