I have a SD Curlee bass & yep it does have brass plate on the back. It also has Grover machine heads and a Badass bridge. I have had this bass for about 20 years and have gigged it heavily. It has a great feel and tone and has never left me down.

My S.D. Curlee has taken a beating for over 26 years
and I can't name another product that can withstand
that! This was my first "GOOD" guitar purchased when
the asking price was around $750.00 new. I was 16 at
the time and told this small shop owner "All I've got is $400.00" Best $400.00 I'd ever spent on a guitar.
The guitar has all brass hardware and the plate on the back is gold plated over brass in answer to your question. I'm not sure when the company went out of buisness, but I've always felt it was a better deal
then if I'd bought a strat or an SG. The hardware and Dimarzio pickups alone said enough, but the 24 fret
neck was a bonus.

i think i really screwed up the first time i tried this, but i'll try again anyway. yes, i own an s.d.curlee, it's from the late 70's or early 80's, i'm not exactly sure though, because it's my dad's, so it's sorta older that me. it has a very pleasant sound and yes, it does have a back plate, right between the fret board and the bridge, except on the back (duh! i knew you already knew that). sorry if i'm not much help, but i can get more info if you would like me to. may i ask why?

3.if it's a guitar does it have 2 humbuckers?
4. all brass hardware?

I have one of the SD "Yankee" basses and it is a great mid scale bass. It is perfect for me. Much like a Travis Bean the pickups are mounted to the neck and bolted into the body. So it is part neck thru/ bolt-on This gives it great sustain and a piano like tone/ growl.
