    Made by Matsumoku; watch the binding neck pocket for cracks and other signs of giving away. It's like an Epi EA-260 with pointy horns in a different color.

    They have narrow string spacing and sound pretty good.

    I can't offer much info, but Conrad must have offered a wide variety. Mine, purchased around '72, was a jazz-style fretless but w/a single pickup. I can't recall why, but I still have the pickup, tuners, and a big Fender-style ashtray. It served me well for a few years back then.

    The only thing I remember about Conrad is that they made a near-perfect copy of the clear Dan Armstrong Ampeg basses. The bassist in my very first band had one (I played guitar on a Mosrite Ventures Model). Heavy as all get out but sounded killer.

    Cool, thanks Jimmy.
    Well, for just over $200, I'm hoping I get a fun toy. Sure looks weird enough for me.

    Finally got it.
    Looks like someone wired the p-up selector switch wrong, but besides that, seems pretty cool. Looks wacky next to my 3 japanese fenders.(all black)
