Columbia basses, anyone heard of them.

  1. I'm just wondering if anybody heard of them ?

    I owned one years ago, but I never heard of some others existed.

    Made in Italy was printed on it.
    It had a body almost like a Jazz bass but the cutaways pointed more like cones away from each other about 40°. Not like jazz where they point almost parallel to the same direction. (If you now what I mean).

    The body was very light, and I mean very light.

    It had one humbucker at the neck. And a scratch-plate.

    The head was Fender like. With tuners where the wormwheel and radarwheel (is this the mechanical term ?) was not casted but visual.

    It was a short scale, about 32".

    I had the Colubia name on it like a tag. Like on old american cars it was written.

    Anyone has some information about these basses ?
