Vintage 60s Kingston "Teisco" Electric Bass Guitar Japan
Nice vintage Kingston "Teisco" Electric Bass Guitar, Made in Japan. Top is clean, pick guard has slight warp in a few spots, a few missing or changed screws. A lot of scratches on back, but original finish is very good for it's age. Very complete and original for a 1960's Japanese bass. Original flat wound strings, thumb rest, "ashtray" bridge / tailpiece cover. Dual pick ups with rosewood inserts, dual slide switches for pick-up selection, volume and tone controls. Scales length is medium (32").
Electronics could use cleaning, a little scratching here and there, but no major issues. Neck is multi-laminate construction, straight (we loosened the rod slightly...) plays nice and no buzzing or fret-out. There is room to adjust action down on the bridge saddles if you like. Hooked up to our Ashdown bass amp and has a nice pleasing vintage bass tone and plays easy. It's cool! No case, but will pack for safe shipment. Will not ship out of the USA, so please don't ask. Of course, the bass may be picked up at our retail store in New Jersey.
