    late-70's to early 80's Matsumoku Vantage Bass. That one looks to be the neckthru version. I sold a bolt-on one just 2 weeks ago. 33" scale (or was it 30"?) with P pickups and an ugly Gibson style bridge that actually worked quite well. I was impressed with it.

    Someone's changed the pickup & knobs, though. They came in cream.

    +1 to this, I had one back in the late 80's that looked exactly like this, except the wood stain was a bit darker.
    Decent bass actually.

    The only rub is that its current location is (I think) in a rough neighborhood

    I wouldn't worry too much about it unless by rough area you mean rough area in Detroit, Chicago, or DC

    I think it's an SB-1000?

    The top bass is probably a Vantage (definitely NOT a Curlee) and hard to tell if it's neck thru, as they made a good faux neck thru.

    The second bass is the nicer of the two judging by pics only. Lots of info here:

    You think you bought it?

    Yup, it's a Vantage alright.
    Mighty fine bass. Have one myself, first bass I ever got.

    Love it to this day. Super soft fast neck, and crazy low bassy growl. Couldn't ask for anything better for the price I got it (FREE).
