    Nice looking bass and great price. Congrats.

    Is that from the Matsumoko factory? It looks a little like the Vantage I used to have.
     
  4. Very cool score for $100. I remember wanting a Daion acoustic back in the 80's,but I just never had the chance to audition one.

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    100 bucks. Holy crap, man. That is ridiculous. And in Seattle, too, where there actually is a sizable market for instruments.

    I am pea green with envy. I am snarlingly jealous. I am a cry-baby that it did not fall to me.

    OMG! WHAT A SCORE!! NEVER SELL IT (UNLESS TO ME) AND KEEP IT IN AS FINE A CONDITION AS YOU CAN!!!!! AND ENJOY, ENJOY, ENJOY!:hyper::hyper::hyper:

    Please post pic of serial number and back of headstock! How much does it weigh? Is there any neck dive at all? Is it 9v or 18v? My gawd that's a beauty.

    I really lucked out on this one. No real neck dive to speak of. Not sure how much it weighs, but seems slightly heavier than my Fender Jazz.

    Daions were made in the Yamaki factory.
    $100 for that? WOW.
