Up for sale, this thing is weirdly awesome, a Ventura hollowbody four string bass - MIJ - that has at one point been lefty converted and they didn't stop at just flipping the nut and adding a strap button - they added a whole wiring harness. Weird, right? So - here's what I know about the electronics. The way it sits right now, with all the knobs and switches where they are - if you plug into the input jack on the side (treble lower bout) it plugs in and sounds - then the four knobs on the right lower bout - I believe - are volume and tones. They are very scratchy, almost cut out, but once you find a sweet spot and leave them be, the pickups are sounding strong and fairly good. I can not for the life of me find what combination fires everything on the other side - nor did I get any out put out using the jack on the face. It is possible someone converted it, then when they switched it back to righty just hooked up the "right hand" electronics. Who knows. 
Playing wise, the neck feels nice, isn't having any fretting out, buzzing or bad spot issues. It's a late 60's / early 70's bass, so it plays as such, but for the year and make it is pretty awesome. The body is in good shape too.
Over all it has plenty of character, scratches, scuffs, dings, bings and age. It also has all the mods. And it is also pretty neat stuff.
