 < Description >
Original bass of Japan Vintage's representative Guyatone. The year is unknown, but it is probably produced during the 1960s and 1970s. The scale is short, about 770mm (30 "), and the nut width is about 39mm. One pickup has a simple configuration of Volume and Tone. The bridge cover is missing, but the logo mark and the sticker model number on the back of the neck remain. It seems to be a valuable material.

In terms of playability, the neck is slightly wavy, and even at normal string heights, depending on the position, if you play strongly, you will get buzz. About tuning machines , when you lower the tuning, you'll notice that the gears spin slightly before engaging the gears. There is some noise in volume and tone pots , but it is not in a state where the sound is cut off. Please consider these conditions when purchasing.
Repair history : partially fret filing. The truss rod has been confirmed to work in both directions, and the fret is partially about 50% remaining. String : D'Addario EXL170M 045-100.
