Who made this vintage Japanese SG?
I'm looking into buying my first bass. I have a great Japanese Les Paul guitar clone made by Burny, so I thought that getting a vintage Japanese bass from 60s/70s would be a good idea. Now, I've found this one. Any idea who made it and if it's any good? I'd appreciate any pointers and suggestions.

I have no idea who made the bass, but the bridge and black knob are not original.
Maybe you can use acetone to take off that black stripe to see who built it. Probably a Matsumoko relative.
looks like there's lettering on the truss rod cover , nice looking unit
I'd bet on the Matsumoku manufacturer origin, too.
As for what BRAND it is, could be anything: Kingston, National, Conrad, Teisco, etc.
Thanks! The truss rod cover says "reinforced neck", and the black stripe ibateur mentioned is actually a shadow.
After some googling I'm afraid it might be an Amena* or something similar; basically a low quality entry level guitar. The cutouts on the body (especially the one under the neck), combined with the simple switches look rather cheapish to me.
Don't you think?
No idea what it is, but it is definitely 100% not a Matsumoku made bass.
