About This Listing

This unbranded Japanese bass is comparable to Vester, Hondo and other guitars made in Japan around this time.

We're not fooling anybody so lets get some questions out of the way. 
The body is laminate, the maple neck is neck and fingerboard.
A bit of furniture is missing: the thumb rest is gone, the pickup cover is gone, the bridge cover is gone. Yes it would look good with all these parts added, but the replacements I've got don't line up with the existing screw holes and to be honest, even though putting the furniture back on would make it look great it would only make sense if you wanted to keep it on.

What's good about this guitar:
The colour - which is great if you like the natural roadworn look. The colour has oxidised about 3 shades darker than that under the pickguard. 
The playability: The neck is good and straight, the action is low. The strings are old but not dead.
The sound: the tone is great. I test stuff through a little Line6 practice amp (not included) and with the settings all straight up the middle the tone is so deep and phat it made me wonder what these pickups are? 
But the guitar certainly has the 'X' factor even when played unplugged,its got an acoustic 'growl' that really just makes you want to play it.

I would definately list this guitar as a 'sleeper'. You could have it in your arsenal and no would think that much, but then you play it ...

I'm sure it wont dissapoint. Oh, and one last thing, it comes in a vintage hard case too!
