    U.S. Masters was a smallish outfit here in Wisconsin that designed and built guitars and basses before going out of business in 2013. Towards the end the name was used on some import stuff. This bass is late 90's early 2000's, hand built down the road from me. It has Zero issues and is in excellent clean played condition overall. There are a few bumps most notably one on the headstock. I have more photos if you like. This is a whole lotta bass for the money friends! Shipping not included at this price.

    These, from this era, are crazy cheap in price for what you're getting. People totally into the vintage side of life (great woods) are into these. Remarkable value for the money!! Red label too!!

    At these prices you can upgrade big time and still come out ahead. Why, you can't afford not to buy it!;)
