  1. Guys, Just wanted to ask what information anybody has on these basses.. there is no name or info on the bass. It just says "made in Japan" on the backplate shown in picture..

    It appears to be a Gibson copy bass? My dad had it forever and I never knew what it was and just was cleaning and found it!

    any info anybody has on these ? or if it's worth anything?

    It does still play nice..

    there are 2 switches on the body with volume controls.

  5. wow. Yes it does.. perhaps It could be a Pan.. who knows. I have no idea why there is no logo on the headstock..

    but that's why Talkbass is great.. At-least I know that's a start to what it is..

    The whole post with follow-ups is here:
    Post your vintage Japanese basses

    IMO this bass is probably from about 1975. Many imported instruments of the '60s and '70s were sold without brand badges or decals.
