Listing #: 465527676
Fretless 4-string bass guitar. Made in Japan, probably in the 80s sometime as Samick bought Vantage in the early 90s and moved production to Korea.

Nice entry level bass with a good feel. Ideal for anyone keen on trying out playing fretless. Top fretboard markers only.

Quality is not too bad, hardware could do with being taken apart and polished however. The body has a few chips on it, one of the worst is by the controls which you should be able to see in the photo. The fretboard has light marks from being played with round wound strings. Currently only has three flat wound strings (missing the low E).

Comes with the original hard case, which is a little worse for wear, but still closes and protects okay.

If paying by bank deposit, please make sure money has gone through before picking up. Thanks.
