Baston Delfi Bass Guitar

Baston Delfi Bass Guitar

I didn’t pay enough attention in history class, I know that, but this Baston Delfi Bass Guitar has me all mixed up. It’s a 70s era bass guitar from Poland, said to be a Soviet Vintage Guitar. Didn’t the Soviets not allow music? Then why were they making guitars? Is this what that whole Cold War deal was about…. music? Is that why we celebrate that hockey game from the 80s, you know the one….

Fender Japan Jazz Bass JB62 Electric Guitar

Fender Japan Jazz Bass JB62 Electric Guitar

I love the vintage white color on this Fender Japan Jazz Bass JB62 Electric Guitar. Sometimes I just want to jam on a bass, and fade off into my own world for a bit. Slap it, pull it, head bob and just let it flow. The first bass line I ever learned was to Green Day’s track Longview from their 1994 album Dookie. I’m going to start there and then work myself up to Primus and that’s…

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.

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…

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….
