Vester Stage Series Bass guitar, late 80’s/early 90’s, Sunburst with Maple neck (Ser. No.96044)

This instrument has been very reliable, is nice to play and has a great tonal range. There’s no significant fret wear, volume & tone pots both work fine and it has always stayed in tune well throughout gigs

BODY Condition:
front view; tidy.
flipside; reflects the instrument has been out there working (re photo) is therefore priced accordingly.
The guitar's hardware items are all in good nick

Weight, balance & playability, even its look, is very similar to that of a Fender P-Bass

I have two Vester Stage Series models and found when upgrading the ‘black one’ (in photo), most hardware components were interchangeable with Fender P-Bass parts. ie. pick-ups, bridge, tuners, volume/tone controls, scratch-guard, even the screws, etc.
All of which are available via

However like many muso’s, I have accumulated way too many similar instruments, so here is an opportunity to grab a decent Bass guitar and get yourself out gigging

Vester History:
Vester was a U.S. music instrument manufacturer specializing in middle to upper range instruments, inc. guitars & basses. Formed as a part of the Samuel Music Company based in Illinois, Vester is perhaps best known for their good quality Japanese and Korean imported electric and acoustic models.
Fender Corp prepared a copyright lawsuit against the company in the ‘90s, based on similarities (the Vester logo, guitar design & components), to that of Fender. Unfortunately the company wasn’t financially powerful enough to take on the musical instrument giant, so had no option but to wind down the Vester operation;

Vester Bass guitars to this day are considered by many to be damn good instruments....I have to agree

Pick up is preferred....however should shipping be necessary, a Fastways courier cost will need to be established, based on buyer delivery address

NB. the two other guitars in the ‘group photo’, are not for sale
