About This Listing

RARE! One of a kind! 
This is the top-of-the-line Riverhead bass made by Headway of Japan c.1990-1995. These were made in extremely limited quantities by the company’s finest craftsperson’s and very seldom exported from Japan so finding another one is not likely to happen.

I acquired this bass new, roughly 28 yrs ago in Argentina and it is my understanding this is the only 5-string as well as top-end model brought into Argentina by Riverhead Japan.  This bass is a pro level instrument in every regard and someone looking for a 5-string thru-neck would be hard pressed to find one built to a higher standard. Information on these basses is about as rare as they are so here’s my best attempt at the specs:

·         5-string fretted model

·         Active electronics (9v x 2 for 18v) – Riverhead pickups – Volume, Blend, Low, Mid, High

.         I believe the body is Walnut (not 100% sure)
