    As the title, says, what are some cool, random MIJ bass brands. Tokai, Greco, Maxx, History, CoolZ etc?

    Preferably something from the 80s-90s, maybe a little less well known. I probably should've added that in the title!

    IM always looking to grab a Prophecy II or Prochecy III from Hartfield.

    The II was my first bass and always regret having traded it for a 2x15

  11. Moon and ESP where some of my faves in the '80s. I had a Tokai back then which was a killer clone I bought new for well under $200.

    Oh, God yes - I've played a few (and at a time I had no discretionary GAScome) but they were outstanding.

    Where did you snag that, anyway? Reverb?

    Cool! They have some pretty cool random stuff drift through from time to time. There was a just about perfect mint Tokai Hard Puncher on there about six months back, and the owner/dealer was only asking about $300 for it, with a hard case to boot. Oh well . . .

    Hondo isn't MiJ (as far as I know), but I tend to group them together. Picked this up yesterday, it's the first Fender shaped bass I've ever owned. Not a huge fan of the headstock, but I like the white and gold.
