 60s-70s Greco Japan Violin Bass! SOLD!

Click any picture for supersize view!

A cool Japanese made bass from the copy era! No logo but identical to a Greco Violin bass we had sold in the past. More than likely, the Japanese factory made this bass and would attach whatever logo was needed. This violin bass cops the vibe of McCartney's bass to a tee. The hollow body is made of maple. The short scale maple neck features a bound rosewood fingerboard. Dual staple pole pickups deliver real vintage tone. A trapeze tailpiece, rosewood bridge and chrome tuners keep it rock solid. The finish is a cool vintage sunburst and is set off by chrome hardware. A cool bass for Beatle types, garage band rockers or anyone that can appreciate style!

This bass plays well and has nice vintage tone. Set up with flatwound strings, it has nice action, good frets and nice feel. The pickups deliver nice tone and really have that 60s vibe. Condition wise, this one is very nice for its age. Pretty well taken care of. It shows light to moderate pick and clearcoat scratches as well as some indents, chips and dings. There's one chip on the headstock. Good overall shape for its age. A nice looking vintage instrument. Comes in a recent used gigbag.

This is a very cool instrument for the bucks. If you're looking at an Epiphone or Jay Turser Beatle bass, you should give this one some consideration. Lots more vibe at around the same price.
