Prestiege / Teisco / Matsumoku "Whitesnake" 1 Pickup Electric Bass (1960s, Redburst)

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.

Sold!

Here for sale is a Redburst Prestiege offset style bass. Plays great, and has a wonderful vintage tone. Made in Japan in the 1960s by Matsumoku, the Teisco holding company.

The finish has a really nice patina to it.  Worn, but not worn out. Someone meticulously carved the "Whitesnake" logo in the forearm contour. I covered in in danish oil to protect the wood. 

The sound is nice. Sort of plunky like a Hofner. Somebody lost two of the pickup poles, but replaced them with mismatched screws.  It works fine though. The original poles were just screws to begin with. 

This bass is regular scale.

***This bass was bought and shipped once already, and a small crack formed where the headstock meets the neck due to mishandling from the courier. I am currently fixing the crack and will have photos to show the fix as soon as it is done! When I am done with it, the crack will be purely cosmetic, and should be structurally stronger than before. Due to this fact, however, I am selling this bass "as described."***


Over all, this is an amazing little vintage bass, and is sure to start a conversation.  OR, perfect for the world's biggest Whitesnake fan. As always, I oiled the board, polished the finish, sprayed out the electronics, changed the strings and tweaked the set up.  Comes with no bag or case.

I will ship with tracking to the listed regions. To negotiate shipping rates to other locations, please send me a message. Items will usually ship within 2-5 business days. If it will be longer than that for some reason, I will send a message to notify the buyer.

I frequently tour and go out to play music on weekends or for a week or so at a time, as I am also a professional bass player. I only take my store down when I am going to be gone for a week or more. So, you might buy something that takes a little more than the aforementioned 2-5 business days if I am out on the road. I will ALWAYS notify the customer if shipping is going to be delayed for any reason, and if this poses a problem, refunds will be considered on a case by case basis.

I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMAGE INFLICTED IN TRANSIT! I do not feel as though it is my place to pay for Fed-Ex or USPS's mishandling of their cargo. Every package I mail is insured, and if your product is damaged in transit, I will glad to help you call the carrier and get your insurance payment. I have been packing guitars and shipping guitars for over ten years, and this has been a problem maybe twice, but both times Fed-Ex tried to claim that it was my fault/the product was shipped improperly so they would not have to make good on the insurance pay-out that I pay extra to have. All of my packing jobs are double checked and shake tested. I am very meticulous about packing.

I am a reasonable guy and might make exceptions to this rule if I feel as though I have made an error, but I refuse to pay for someone else's mistakes. Remember, anytime you get a guitar shipped (not just from me), you take the risk of it breaking or losing it.
