    Hey there, I recently saw a VJ Rendano P/J bass for sale locally. The seller states that it is Korean made, from the late 70's/early 80's and is in really good shape for its age. I have never heard of this brand and the only information I can find online is that it appears to be a Cleveland wholesaler brand.

    Its fire engine red, p style maple/maple neck, volume knob, tone knob, 3 way switch for pickups. String through bridge and appears to have some brass parts. I'm guessing that the body is plywood. I really dig the look of this thing.

    The guys is asking for $90, but I am wondering if it is worth $90? Can anyone provide me any other information on this brand or the actual Korean maker of the bass? What would it compare to? Does anyone actually own one of these made in Korea and how do you like it? I would appreciate any help.

    Generic Korean bass probably made by Samick. Same bridge as Epi, Hondo, et al. Looks cool though.

    I saw this, too, browsing local ads. I was curious, too. Thanks for posting the question!

    I know nothing about that bass, but barring major structural problems, am almost certain there's more than $90 of value there.

    Dimensions look a little wonky to me, maybe it's 3/4 sized? Or it could just be the angle of photograph.

    Technically speaking, it's red and maple so your finger speed will increase.

    Fingerboard grain looks nice. For $90, if it plays good, I would do it!
