    The other day i found a MANN bass. I have never heard of this bass in my life. And it weighs a tun. If any one knows about this bass plese tell me about it and if there is a web sight i could go to and learn more that would be great. thank you for all your help.

    These were made in Japan during the mid 70's. All of their instruments were copies of other popular guitars and basses. They were poor quality imitations compared to the originals they were copying.
    Most common are the Rickenbacker 4001 and Fender Jazz bass copies. They also made a copy of Gibson's EB-3
    Needless to say, MANN instruments didn't last very long.
    That's probably a good thing IMO.
    Cheers

    You might get up to $100.00 for it if you're lucky. Or you just might want to keep it as a wall hanger.
