    Uhhh, no. The Westone is a Matsomuko, NOT Fuji Gen Gakki.

    66/67 EBO #000071 bought for $75 back in the day, put a set of roto sounds on it and used it to strenghten my fingers for playing the 6 strings...cracked neck with a shiit repair job by someone but its fun to have and play a bit ...one of these days i will clean it up...

    My one and only bass...a 1980 Fender Musicmaster. Bought it new 37 years ago for recording. Great little bass!

    If that Aria sounds ANYTHING like the single pickup version in this video, my hats off to you! :thumb:

    This is one of my all time favorite bass sounds. Right up there with Geddy Lee. :shock:

    Just amazing tone, snarl, bottom end, punch. It's got it all! :applause:

    The Hofner is such a lovely little bass, with a huge sound, if you know how to
    Extract tone from them.
    This one is very special. It is a German 62 reissue that I got when they first appeared in
    Numbers back in ? Don't remember exactly. It is signed by the man himself. I don't play it much for that reason, but do use it.

    some photos before and after it was signed.

    the very first band i was in the guitar player had a red Hofner just like that. Unique back then, as yours is now.
    Very nice.

    Yes, pretty sure this is totally original. We bought it from the original owner. It is a wonderful instrument to play. Yours grabbed my eye as soon as I saw it. I always look at the bridges, as most have been modified. I noticed your damper bar is gone. That seems pretty common.

    Acoustic 371.. But I never got a chance to try it out with the Vox Amp.. But the Acoustic Control Corporation 370 Head and 301 Cabinet is a really Great Bass Amp...!!!

    I really like that blue with MOTS pick-guard!

    I could rock that! Even the white tortoise shell. Classic!

    Thank you! The blue one was a Partscaster, built with a Mighty Mite body, and Fender '57RI neck. A fantastic bass.

    White one is an American Standard.

    To me that is one of the big differences and advantages of Fender's approach to say, Gibson. :thumb:

    The ability to mix and match and modify with relative ease...

    And at the end of the day, can anyone in the audience tell the difference? Polly not. :hmm:

    But it has to bring a smile every time someone raves over the sound of your 'partscaster'! Because you know something they don't know..... LOL!!! :D
