Play - Name This Bass Guitar

Recommended Posts

hi bass players,

 

I usually post on other forums although I do visit here every now and then. If any of you are knowledgable in the ways of old (imported?) electric bass guitars, I'd appreciate it if you could check out this picture and this headstock picture . I liked the sound of it even when I played it un-amplified at the second-hand store and I'd like to know what I bought.

 

thanks,

 

John

On Bob Gollihur's site he has a couple pictures of the first bass he ever owned and I believe the bass you bought is the same model. Give me a minute as I try to find out his sites address.

It looks like you bought a crown, a japanese import from the sixties.

Regarding his crown, Bob says,"it sounds pretty darn good-- a very live mahogany body and neck (no side dots!), and exceptionally low and narrow frets. "

 

Now, you're model has two pickups and Bob's has one, but they appear very similar to me!

You can scroll down until you see the bass in question. I'll wait for Bob to chime in.

Yep, looks like a Crown bass, made in the late 60's to early 70's (I think) Imported from Japan. Bob G. has a few pictures of them on his site.
