Lyle Basses

I picked a Bass up at a Estate sale for $10 the other day. Want to know if you guys can tell me about it.

The brand is a Lyle.

It has two pickups

Has that statocaster look. (I did a google search, and nothing they came up with was the same.

The electronics DO work.

Now, one question I do have.

What kind of quality are these?

Thanks

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Lyle was, IIRC, one of a plethora of MIJ/MIK manufacturers in the 1960s-1980s. They had some original designs and some copies. If it works, then I'd say you got your money's worth.

That's about all I can comment on without pictures.

For $10, if it makes a sound you've got a good deal.
I'll give you $20 right now for it and double your money without even seeing a picture!

If you curious about any resale value, I can't help you there - it's probably low though. But for quality, really, a $10 bass is a rare find. Just rock it.

However, I think a buddy of mines dad had a Lyle bass. It was a Mosrite Venture close, if I remember right. It had really high action but sounded kinda funky.
