1970's Cimar Bass PJ -any good??
Can't find much...other than it was somehow affiliated to ibanez.
I wonder if the woods are decent? have read that it's often plywood.
I wonder if young body has useful tips as to what to expect sound wise.
Would it make a good modding platform (change pups and bridge) ?
my first bass was a new mid 80's cimar P, an Ibanez offshoot.
Solid body ash (?) definitely not plywood.
I liked it alot after some mods and it served me very well as a first beater bass for 5 years.
EMG split p-ups.
sealed bearing keys.
I had a Jazz bass copy by Cimar in the early 80's (I think it was made in the late 70s though). It was actually pretty decent, MIJ and it wasn't plywood. It was a natural finish bass I took apart to examine one day, and it was solid wood.
Sound wise, it's very decent, but the pups were pretty weak. I don't have it now, but from what I remember, it was more than capable and pretty sturdy, the sound was just a tad bit too muddy for me. So if you change the pups, you'll be good.
The bass in that link looks awesome. I'd rock the heck out of any 70's MIJ Fender knock-off.
