Talkbass helped me learn about these basses. TBC (The Bass Company) handmade Stingray-inspired basses in California during the 1990's. Fine components. Gotoh bridge and tuners. String through body. 9 volt 2-band preamp. This one is Sunburst, showcasing a beautiful Alder body. Abalone dots. Early specimen, serial #126. Likely spent its life in storage because in person, it could pass for a bass a quarter its age. Got a really good eBay deal on this.
