Unknown foreign builders

  1. Ok, we all know about Spector, Alembic, Zon and the likes, but how about some foreign basses?? I have a Bassline Buster 5. A german bass and it's great. I was wondering if there are other people out there who have not-so-well-known-but-still-great basses. And for your viewing pleasure I've included a picture of my bass.

    Italia
    here in italy there are really good luthiers. i have tried awesome basses from. my favorites are the frudua jvo5 and the laurus quasar 5 with maple top. the fretless laurus are the best fretless i have ever tried,but they retail for the corrispective of 3000$...

    the only italian bass i own is one of the last EKO made here in italy. not an high end instrument,but a cheap mass producted jazz style bass. not that bad.

    Moon, AtelierZ, and Atlansia are Japanese companies (I think) that make nice instruments.
