Guild B301 Kramer? Alembic?

The Gretsch Committee bass, was produced (along with a Committee guitar) in Booneville Arkansas, from 1976 to 1981. It was quite different from any Gretsch bass that had preceded it. The 1970s fashion of un-painted bass guitars with contrasting woods (think Alembic, Kramer etc) was all the rage; in this case solid walnut double cutaway body, with a through maple and walnut neck. The clear finish shows off the wood spectacularly, and a close up image of the Committee guitars adorns the front cover of the 1979 Gretsch catalogue.
