    This is a Seiwa, which was made by Ibanez in Japan - probably early '80s, as it has the same headstock and features as the Roadstars of that era. Non-original, non-matching tuners, but all else is original and works just fine. Get yourself a cheap beater, backup, or replace a couple parts and she'd be a great vintage player too! Normal player wear, with a few dings and scratches.

    $140 shipped - might consider trades, but my interests are pretty narrow (and Precision-oriented).

    More pics coming later - on my way to practice right now.

    Cheap digital bathroom scale says 8.2 lbs. And the nut width is like a standard P neck: 1 5/8".

    Here you can see the tuners better. None are original. If I were the buyer I'd replace the tuners and pickup (both work fine, by the way) and have a great playing vintage bass for not much money.

    I may end up considering Canadian shipping if it doesn't sell more locally. But there's enough interest already that I'm going to hold out for now, sorry.

    Offer of $125 shipped to lower 48 will stand until it's sold. (I'll let it go for 110 locally).

    There's a possible trade deal in the works on this one, but not sure yet - so until then it's still for sale.
