Vintage Made in Japan Matsumoku Aria Pro II TSB 400 "Thor Sound" electric bass guitar


This gorgeous ARIA Pro II TSB-400 bass guitar was made in Japan at the historic Matsumoku factory from sometime in the 1980's, from the serial number it's probably a 1980 version. I'm not a bass player but I have tried it and it has an enormous range in tone and feels and sounds like a few thousand £££ of vintage Fender rather than a bass costing just a few hundred pounds!!

Other players seem to like this bass, here's what I gleened from the iternet "The Aria Pro II TSB-400 was the higher end of the Thor Sound models, this has two pickups which are massive split coils and this puts out a tremendous low end because of the p bass body design and rosewood fretboard, but you still can roll over the high end and get a lot of snap out of this bass". Sounds good to me.

The frets are in great shape and all of the electronics work and have been cleaned out. Cosmetically this is a great looking bass guitar, heavy but nonetheless, gorgeous to look at, hold and play. Of course there is some wear and tear and there's a small ding to the lower bout, just below the volume / tone controls on the edge.  I have shown this in the images supplied plus you can see how light the wear is across the instrument as a whole. While there are some dings and surface scratches it's absolutely nothing for a bass instrument that has been played and loved across 4 decades. 

So if you are a serious Japanese collector and want a very nice all original thumper here it is. If you have any questions at all please ask. Offers welcome but don't try to low-ball me, I'll leave it on the wall as a beautiful ornament rather then give it away!!
