This is a 1980's or 1990's era GRECO PHOENIX 4 string bass guitar made in Japan. The Greco Phoenix is a bass that was ONLY available to the Japanese market. That is why you just don't see a lot of these. This bass plays so easily. It practically plays itself, and you just need to guide it. It also sounds great. It has the classic precision jazz bass tone, but with no buzz due to the active electronics. It is pretty dead quiet when you're playing it, making it great for the studio and live sound. There's nothing worse than a bunch of single coil humm on stage ruining the entire stage sound. - Greco Phoenix 4 bass guitar. - Precision Jazz bass set up - 34" scale neck, 24 frets. - Active electronics - Controls are Volume, Blend, Tone, and Mid Switch regular / scoop for slap - Ash body, three piece maple neck, ebony fret board.
