Fender lucite prototype, here's another lucite-bodied guitar, this time it's a Renaissance Bass from 1978 with a body fashioned from opaque black lucite rather than the usual see-through variety.
Renaissance guitars also appeared with see-through lucite bodies (such as this example) and with smoked-effect lucite (see this other example).
Renaissance guitars and basses were produced between 1977 and 1980 in Pennsylvania. As well as lucite bodies, guitars and basses featured DiMarzio pickups and active electronics.
This bass is currently listed on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $2,795.
