Hi Bill,
Rick is right. It is a Hofneresque bass like McCartney played. Although something about the pickups makes me think this is a Hofner knockoff.
What instruments you been working on?

Got any pics to look at? My 41 NY has a metal fretboard so I am not familiar with the acrylic ones. It must really be warped to interfere with string action.

Thank's Kevin. You did a stellar job on one of my favorite Hawaiian tunes. Your playing and technique give me something to aspire to. Beautiful guitar, too. You need to throw a welcome home party.

Cool guitar. Is the pickup adjustable? From the video it looks like it is a long way from the strings.

I believe Sherwood was a brand used by Montgomery Wards stores. They bought mostly from Kay and Harmony, but like Mark and Noah have said, this one was made by Kay in Chicago.
