OK, a little back story...

I bought a Univox Jazz Bass Professional series about 10 years ago. The bass is one of my favorites , its a keeper and pro bass. I found out afterwards that it a Canadian only offering back in 1976 and the basses are made by Matsumoku and are Identical to the Professional series offered by Aria back then.

Here is my Jazz bass:

I knew that they offered a P-bass from the same Professional series but never came across one until this week.
One got advertised and after some negotiation, the bass was shipped today and hopefully I will get it Monday or Tuesday...

Here is my new in Transit Univox Professional P-Bass (sellers pics) :

Nice--I've played some older Matsumoku made P Bass copies--and some of them feel real cheap--looks like you got one of the later/better ones.

Enjoy!

OK... quick pics...

This is the bass as it arrived.

My wife thought it was damage due to the scuffing on the top right case corner...

I proceeded to inspect the goods...


Every seemed to be in order...


Looks OK...


So here she is ! ;)

I played with it for over an hour so far..


Its a nice bass, quite lighter compared to the Jazz...


Seller told me that the neck radius was like a Jazz but its thicker then the Jazz, so not the same at all.


Nice condition but has quite a few nicks and dents on it... C la vie !
