    Hi all!
    A friend's wife just found this bass while doing some late spring cleaning in her mother's house; it belonged to her brother who passed away more than 15 years ago.

    There's no information on it as what the make or model is, only the word 'Japan' is stamped on the plate holding the neck. Looking around the 'net I found out that it seems to be a Univox bass, but again, not even a serial number.

    The tunning pegs have been messed with; three of them are missing the ferrules and one of them is missing the whole peg where the string wraps around.


    I would like to know where I can get the replacement tunning keys and ferrules; we might start replacing the missing ferrules and the broken key, and maybe later change the other ones, if it warrants it.

    I'm attaching the pictures of the bass, the headstock, so that you can have an idea of the bass and help me get on my way to bringing this baby back to life.

    Any information will be greately appreciated.



    Tunning pegs

  2. Hi.

    Those pegs look like the Matsumoku factory design.
