[GEAR] What kind of guitar is this?

http://imgur.com/a/v7OAE

I can't decipher the writing on the headstock. Anybody know what this thing is? It appeared for sale on consignment at my local guitar shop and nobody can figure out what it is. The guy that brought it in got it in a storage unit auction, so he doesn't know much about it. Plays nice. Sounds really good too. Any of you guys ever seen one of these before?

[QUESTION] Single guitarist with a drummer. No vocals. No bass. Gear and gigging advice urgently needed.

Guys, I have been in this combo with my drummer for almost two years now. He is really loud and we attempt to do some fairly loud, simple and melodic instrumental post-rock/-metal stuff with me looping a bunch. It's fun.

Now we have our first gig coming up in a few weeks. It will be a room of approx. 120 square meter filled with 50 friends (and not much else). Our equipment will not be mic'd (we're thinking about putting a mic on the bass and snare, there is a tiny PA).

Right now I am worried that my trusted but fairly noisy Hot Rod Deluxe with an added 1×12 will not be able to fill up the room nicely and am looking at getting a new amp with a bunch of low end (Orange TH100 is my top pick right now, as I have about 1k to spend) and a 4×12.

What are you guys thinking? Will the Hot Rod Deluxe sound like a tin can? Which amp should I get for this project?

Are we insane to not play with a PA? Is our best bet for the concert to shell out some money on renting a PA and putting a mic on everything?

Thanks a bunch for any help. I am having some sleepless nights and some serious GAS.

Buying a mid range 5string bass

Hello, I am buying a 5 string bass, and i was looking especially at these two: http://www.thomann.de/gb/fender_squier_vint_mod_jazz_v_nt.htm http://www.thomann.de/gb/marcus_miller_v7_swamp_ash_5_nt.htm I was looking at a mid range jazz bass, but since i'm basically a begginer, i still do not know much about active/passive and so on.. i play basically with fingers, not much picking or slapping, and the music is more or less rock (some songs like Summer of 69/ Maria (blondie), scotty doesnt know, the middle, and so on) 😀 I look forward to any feedback and recomendations.

Thank you all 😀

[QUESTION] Is it normal for the light on my Fender Hot Rod Deluxe III to be flickering a little bit?

I just noticed that when I look at my amp from the top I can see the light flickers a bit. Does this mean I need a better power source? It is not completely flickering on and off but it just dims the light a tiny bit every little while.
