    Hey all, I just picked up what appears to be a Vintage Canora bass. I can't really find much info on the Canora brand though, and can't find any pictures of a Canora bass that looks anything like this one. Is there anyone here that could give some info on the brand, and or possibly date this bass??

    I'd guess mid-late 60's but could be wrong. In any event, that bass is completely full of awesome! String it up and start rockin' it!

    yeah, I want to string it and play it!! but it needs a new nut first:) I thinks it's going to sound pretty sweet.

    Well, A, D, and G anyway...

    Some lower-tension strings might be in order, once you replace the nut. Cool looking bass. Rock it indeed!

    Geddy Lee's first bass was a Canora. Said it cost him $35 (had to work at his parents store all summer to save the money).

    Cool-lookin' bass, and the price is right. Report back here once you string it up, please.
