    So, I found this on an Indonesian site. It's sold but I am intrigued by it. Never heard of the name but am intrigued by the checking on the body. Also, it seems to have had pups with rounded ends, which I do recall from the dim and distant past. The neck, sporting a lovely patina, has had period Fender-types tuners on it at one point before being swapped out to something more contemporary.

    Any comments? Penco 2. Penco 1. Penco 5. Penco 4. Penco 3.

    It was probably made by one of the big factories in Japan back in the Seventies. Most of these old basses are really good.
