    Selling this because I've already got a couple others - This is an awesome 60's hollowbody Japanese 1420/1430 Violin bass that kills any overpriced Hofner or Gibson, these were import labeled Aria and many other brands (Apollo, Orlando, Univox etc) most notably used by Robert De Leo on many STP tracks and their unplugged performance.

    Neck is straight and rod turns with no issues. Non stock knobs, missing electronics cover (I could send you a template for a new one), pickups are wired out of phase but work and sound tremendous, there is some refinishing on the back and this has plenty of wear but is ready to go.

    Ships via Fedex ground in Roadrunner gig bag that actually fits great.

    Happy to talk trades for rare pedals and other killer 4 strings!

  4. Are those humbuckers in there or single coils, why are they wired out of phase? Beautiful bass.

    Thanks! Not sure on the pups question(s) unfortunately but it does put out a lot more volume than its identical counterpart.

    In digging around looking for info I noticed this bass was featured in this online Violin bass gallery:
