About This Listing

This is the model „Basso IV“ by the czechoslovakian manufacturer „Jolana“. Jolana produced instruments in the UdSSR between the 60s and the 80s and is responsible for many beautiful guitar models like the „Diskant“, the „Iris“ or the „Graziella“. Usually, many of the guitars from the UdSSR are not that prominent anymore, since most of them are clearly worse than their western counterparts, but Jolana is different. They combined extremly pretty designs with modern guitar building techniques and had a lot of very skilled luthiers, so the guitars from their factories where, and still are, stunning and are in no way inferior to their western counterparts.

The bass is in really good shape for its age over all, but got some wear here and there of course, as you can see in the pictures. The electronics are fully functioning, the switches and potis work perfectly and the pickups produce a nice and distinctive vintage sound, perfect for the music of the 60s and 70s. The neck is straight and the action is low, therefore it is comfortable to play. The frets where polished, the fretboard was oiled and the strings are new too!

The bass can be played immediatly.

If you have any questions left, or if you need more pictures, feel free to ask :-)

About shipping:

I ship worldwide with DHL and with the DHL-shipping insurance wich goes up to 500€. I am not going to lie to you or blandish a possible transport risk like some other people do. International shipping can be dangerous and packages are sometimes treated roughly. If you however choose to have an international shipment, I will do my absolute best to protect the guitar. I have collected a lot of experience in the past on how to ship a guitar securely. I will take photos of the packaging and the exact condition of the guitar right before I ship it. You should know, that after shipping the guitar and entering the shipping number, I am not responsible for anything anymore and my job is done. But I will gladly back you up with the insurance case with said photos and exact details in the rare case anything goes wrong. The standart insurance I ship all guitars with is up to 500€. If you want a higher insurance, you can get that, just ask me first. Please note, that international shipping can sometimes take very long, on average 2 weeks for EU shipping and 1 month for intercontinental shipping, but it can take up to 3 times that time in some very rare cases.


Taxation after UStG §25a. I usually take back everything you buy from me within 14 days after the arrival of the package. The conditions are, that everything is in the original condition I shipped it in and the shipping costs are carryed by the buyer.
