Here is a crazy looking old Decca bass guitar from the 1960’s. It was made in Japan and I suspect it was made by the same folks who made the Teisco Del Rey guitars and some other imports from that era.
It features two pickups with rocker switches and controls for volume and tone. It has a plastic guard and a chrome control plate.
As you can see the finish shows some small scratches, nicks and dings but nothing terrible. There is a section of missing binding on the bass side of the fingerboard from the nut to the 5th fret or so (see photos).
One tuner is changed. The neck is REALLY chunky but still comfortable and the small frets are in good shape. Both pickups work and have good output.
The bass plays and sounds good for an early import, and it definitely looks cool. So while it may not replace your Fender or other more modern bass it’s still fun to play and eye catching.
It comes in the black chipboard case you see in the photos. The case is Very worn but is The Original Case .
