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…

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…

I have to tip my hat to the seller of this 1974 Ampeg V-B4 Electric Bass Guitar Amplifier. He writes: “It’s heavy. It’s LOUD! It’s an Ampeg!” Well played, sir.
