I'm not sure if it is the coolest bass ever, or a combination of the worst ideas the 70's had to offer, but a friend of a friend just walked in with the weirdest Ovation bass I've ever seen. A little research leads me to believe it is a Magnum 3, since it has the WACKIEST active electronics I've ever seen, but a more normal (Fendery) body shape. OEM Magnum owners manual here: http://www.ovationtribute.com/Catalogues/Magnum%20Bass%20Owner%20Manual/Magnum%20Bass%20Owner%20Manual.html Weird body style, huge weird bridge, HUGE neck 'bucker, weird greyburst finish, this thing is an ugly duckling for sure. You can see the PCB in the manual, it has (8) ICs, and (2) 9V batteries. Whoa. Now I just have to find what's not working. Any tips? The input jack alone is a switching type I've never seen... Eesh.
