I admit to have quite an obsession with 60`s Japan made basses !!!

Some are weird, wacky or just plain Tacky !!! :rolleyes:

Who has some nice or weird ones here ???



Here is my old Kent Gold who knows what the F... it is.... But I like her !!!:cool:

I like them, but never found one in my neck of the woods where the price was reflected by the condition and playability. Most people in my area think old = $$$

MIJ glory days started in the 70's. IMO.
I agree

the quirky stuff in neat and can sound cool but I find that you're often fighting the beast more than playing it. starting 1970 the quality and stylistic influences stepped up alot and voila, some sweet stuff. El Degas even make real neck thru Ricky.

I like this baby also...

Its an early 60`s Teisco bass.

I got it with it`s original snakeskin case, the bass was wraped in a plastic bag inside and so was the bass cord in the case !!!

Can you say brand spanking new !:)

I have a 67 Sunburst Kent 743 that's in excellent condition. It's one of the models with the triple binding. I recently had it at the 12th Fret for some fret work and a setup. It's a killer bass.

I'd post a photo of it but can't since Photobucket eliminated the 3-party hosting unless you pay them $399.00 per year.
