1984 Yamaha BX-1 Fretless Electric Bass Guitar

1984 Yamaha BX-1 Fretless Electric Bass Guitar

I love a good story and this 1984 Yamaha BX-1 Fretless Electric Bass Guitar from Japan sure has one. Seller is the original owner and bought it new and fretted (he doesn’t even know if it was offered as a fretless model). Seller had a buddy at Schecter—we should all be so lucky—pull the frets, fill them in and, as you can see, he did a remarkable job. This kitty’s been rocking ever since. Seller says…

1960s Airline Pocket Bass Electric Guitar

Well, here’s a very cool kitty—a 1960s Airline Pocket Bass Electric Guitar. Wikipedia says all Airlines of that era were made by a company called Valco and sold through Montgomery Wards. Read all about it here. Seller doesn’t say much about her. Apparently she has “superb tone and an upright bass kinda lively feel and thump.” I love me some lively feel and thump. She’s got a transducer in pickup in the bridge as well as…

Tobias Renegade Electric Bass Guitar

Tobias Renegade Electric Bass Guitar

Let’s see, have we heard this story before? A guy starts a company building axes. A larger company, in this case Gibson, comes alongs and buys the company. The company hires the founder (in this case, Mr. Michael Tobias)  to make axes like this Tobias Renegade Electric Bass Guitar, but eventually the former owner goes his own way and starts another company making axes. Kinda like when Leo Fender sold to CBS then worked with Music Man before starting…

Zon Sonus Electric Bass Guitar

Zon Sonus Electric Bass Guitar

The Japanese have a saying that our name is our first face. So what is the first face of this American-made Zon Sonus Electric Bass Guitar? Is it in the zone?  Or maybe it’s pronounced Zun, like son? Kinda like the Prius and I still don’t know the answer to that one. But I’m willing to look past such things to consider the gal who bears the name and she holds up just fine, thank you very much….

2008 Ken Smith BSR5MW Electric Bass Guitar

2008 Ken Smith BSR5MW Electric Bass Guitar

Holla! It’s a 2008 Ken Smith BSR5MW Electric Bass Guitar handcrafted right here in the good old USA. She’s a solid union of Flame Maple and Walnut that seller notes plays and sounds great. Her pickups are custom Smiths and I’m pretty sure those five control knobs give you loads of sonic control over the sounds she makes. She’s definitely been played; you can see some nicks and such, including a little finish marring where a…

Modulus Quantum Fretless Electric Bass Guitar

Modulus Quantum Fretless Electric Bass Guitar

Some folks have a special talent for coming up with cool names, such as the people who dreamed up the Modulus Quantum Fretless Electric Bass Guitar. Modulus sounds like some futuristic robot. Quantum evokes atomic energy. Put it all together and that is some special sauce being laid down. Seller thinks this beauty is from 1998 but isn’t 100% solid on that. Seller knows for sure this is a one-owner bass because he sold it as a custom…
