Category: Bass Guitars


 1960's antoria soundmaster bass. semi acoustic. lovely sunburst finish. not quite mint condition , but fully working, perfecty playable bass.
japanese made. in the 1960's. no real need to say much else. made in japan. back when a luthier was told to take his time and make it beautiful. not, make as many as is possible so we can all buy mercedes benzs'.
i aquired this about 4 yrs ago, they feller i got it off told me that he bought it in the 1960's, played it twice, decided he didnt want to anymore, took the tension of the strings, and put it in its case under his bed and it stayed there untill 4 yrs ago. so.... there is NO fretwear, the neck is not bowed nor twisted and the floating bridge has neither collapsed nor broke. tuners work perfectly,as are the pick ups , wiring and switches too. beautiful vintage tone to it. needs valves and big old dusty 15 inch cabs to really bring out the best from this bass.
please feel free to ask any more questions .
and feel free to moan about postage costs. you can come pick it up if you wish. i just want to make sure , if someone else is responsilble for delivering it to yourself, as much care is taken, as I would do.
i wont send this cheap. your not going to complain if it turns up broke, because some fool left it in your wheely bin because you didnt answer the door in time.
cheers !!!
