FS: One of a Kind Vintage Hollowbody Bass
Up for sale is an extremely unique Bruno Conqueror hollow body bass. I've only seen 2 or 3 of these for sale ever, and none have been like this (Bruno was one of many brand names manufactured in Japan in the 60s & 70s). She's now fretless, wears Fender tapewound strings, and is wired V-V-T (with a 3-way Switchcraft switch). The nut/zero fret width is 1 5/8", but it feels thinner (2" wide @ 12th fret), and the scale length is 30". There is no case or gig bag. This particular bass was bought by me as a project, and the following has been done since I've owned it:
-completely strip paint/finish
-stain bass body, but maintain a "weathered" look
-remove frets, fill fret slots
-make a new bone nut
-modify & install Hofner bridge
-make custom one-off pickup/switch/truss rod plates
-install vintage Teisco pickups
-install CTS pots, Sprague cap, Switchcraft switch & jack, cloth push-back wire
-install vintage-type open gear tuners
-install vintage NOS Dakaware bakelite knobs
I'm asking $250/shipped OBO.
Bump for a couple of added details.
Not a fan of 30" scales but had to comment after reading and seeing the pics. Really cool restoration you did. Looks awesome. GLWTS.
Thanks for the compliments! Bump.
I learned how to play on one of these.
Bump for price drop!
The "if it had frets it would be on it's way to San Diego" bump.
