Do any of you know what bass is this?
I know it's not the best picture, but that's all I got.
Looks like a vintage japanese bass, 60s maybe... the switches and tuning keys match a lot of teiscos I've seen.
It would help if you posted the artists name,if you know it.
He's Tobias Sammet from Edguy/Avantasia, but it won't help: there are absolutely no information online about his gear (he is mainly a singer and only plays bass occasionally in the studio).
It's a,,,,, um....no wait......dam, uh.........Epiphone.
makes me think of the moserite ventures bass that deedee (was it deedee?) ramone played before he started using fender P-basses.
slightly modified hagstrom or hofner solid body from the 60's is my guesstimate.
+1. It's a 60's Japanese-made POS.
I've never seen Dee Dee w/anything but a P*- Johnny Ramone played a Mosrite guitar- at least most of the time.
*Not saying you're wrong/mistaken, just that if true, I was unaware.
On topic- 60s/70s MIJ POS.
Thanks guys, but what is POS? Never heard of that.
POS = Piece Of S**t
Looks like a batwing-era Epiphone guitar. Any word if they made basses at that time?
EDIT: found a pic. Close, but not quite. +1 for POS import
Not a Hag, for sure.
It's a Klira model 561 Arkansas. Klira's were built in Germany in the small village of Bubenreuth during the 60's through to the early 80's. Bubenreuth is the same village that Hofner, Framus and Pyramid were all located during that time.
Klira OEM'd their instruments under various brand names, the most popular one being Triumphator.
