Some years back, I bought a Magnum bass on Ebay that had only a single pickup and a unique pickguard and routing configuration. I posted here, but never received any information on the bass. I don't have access to the bass during quarantine to take pictures, but it was documented on Worthpoint. The name Banner Thomas (Molly Hatchet) looks to be factory engraved on the truss rod cover. I'd love to hear if anyone knows the story behind this bass:

Don't know anything about it, but it looks badass. Reminds me of the Guild Jetstar (first edition, 65/66 I think) basses. The pickup looks to be somewhere in the general vicinity of the MM StingRay "sweet spot"...how does it sound?
