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.
