This is a Hagstrom 8 string bass, year is 67 to 69 and there was only 2200 of them made.These are setup kinda like a 12 string guitar,hagstrom 8 string bass

Where the regular 4 strings are coupled with a extra thinner string to give it that ringing sound I have never played one myself but I did some research on them.
