    Hi. Is there anyone in here that can take a "wild" guess on this bass? Bought this one recently. The previous owner is not with us anymore. The only thing i know is that someone remember him using this bass in 1983-84. There is no stamps on the pots or anywhere else. Only "made in japan" on the neck plate. I think its 100% original. Its solid wood. Its not one piece. There is at least 2 pieces of wood I believe. The shape of this thing is stunning. Even the gigbag it came with is screaming vintage! Nice if someone could fill in some info:)

    In 1970s the very same bass came out as Cimar, Aria, Greco and other brands. I had one of those. Wood is incredible. But pick ups were crap Epicentar.

    I will try it on my ampeg when I get back from my holidays. Until then I have no idea of sound/pickups. Hopefully there might be good options when it comes to replacing them?
