Arbiter vintage bass.
This is a beautiful and rare vintage bass made in Japan during the sixties or early
seventies by Arbiter; a company which started in 1966 as Arbiter-Western later changing
the name to Dallas-Arbiter and then to Hayman.
It is finished in a red burst (red and black), with a three-ply black scratchplate containing
the two black pickups with two, two-way pickup switches plus two volume controls
and one tone control. The bridge/tailpiece is all adjustable and still retains its chrome cover and
the original two fixing screws which is very unusual to see after forty years or so.
The maple neck is bolted on and on the neckplate is the "made in Japan" sticker; and the
rosewood fingerboard contains 20 frets. The headstock holds the four on a side chrome tuners
which show a little very light rust; the string retainer and the "Arbiter" logo.
This bass guitar is in a very good condition with a few minor marks on it, and with a low action and new strings
plays very well. This is the very first Arbiter bass of this type I have ever seen and it comes
with its original soft bag.
