Vintage 70’s MIJ Precision-style Bass

 Vintage 70’s MIJ Precision-style Bass

 

This is a 1970’s Made in Japan Precision-style bass. It’s not quite full-scale, but not a short scale either. It’s been professionally setup and plays and intonates well. The original pickup was completely dead, so it’s been replaced with a Seymour Duncan Antiquity 50’s-style pickup. Great output and sounds amazing. 

 

The bass is all original with the exception of the pickup.

The bass is in great condition and feels great. I was hoping my son could use it, but it’s just a touch too big, so I need to find a better solution for him.

Japanese instruments can be very hard to pin down to a particular manufacturer. I think I’ve found a bass that’s almost identical online under the name “Delta”. I’d be happy to send on the link if you’d like to check it out. Regardless, the bass is very well made and sounds and feels great, which is often the case with vintage Japanese instruments.

  1. As I have stated in the past This Is Another of those heavy sought after Japanese Bass`s made in that famous factory Matsumoto Where many Lawsuit era brands were also made. And as i have also stated before if you ever get a chance to grab one of these do it. They are every bit as good as the Japanese Fenders of the era. As I am selfishly checking into this one myself. ha ha….
