    I have no idea if this old bass will sell or not. Thought I would give it a try. I rescued it from a barn a few years ago and it was in pretty rough shape. I was able to get everything working again and it plays pretty nicely now. A testament to the quality of these 80's era Japanese made instruments. I believe this came out of the famous Matsumoku factory. It is not pretty, lots of fading and checking to the finish. Neck looks rough but it is actually pretty smooth. It would make a good beater bass. Let me know if you have any questions.. 150.00 plus shipping or trade for wireless system or IEMs. Comes with cheap o no name gig bag..

    Nice old bass. How are the electronics and tuners?

    Everything functions as it should.. Good taper to both tone and volume just a slight bit scratchy. Tuners are nice and smooth. And truss rod turns fine both ways, a bit stiff but functions as it should. I little oil to the rod would fix that. Currently has around .012mm of relief.
