I am sadly forced to sell my musical instrument collection and more due to on going medical bills. My friend helps me mostly. I work when I can so please be patient with questions and response time.

We try to describe every aspect of the item to the best of our ability and take many pictures from all angles, with or without flash so you can see exactly what you are buying. We are not techs or pros, just a player. I do not adjust necks or examine/work on the inner electronics or pickups. This is an old vintage item and being such is sold "AS IS". Most of these instruments have been kept in climate controlled storage for many years. However, we will always work with all our customers, if there is any problem that we missed something by mistake. Just let us know and we will make it right!



Rare old vintage Silvertone or National sunburst bass. Bass has those classic unique contoured body edges that were found on the old Silvertone, National and Univox basses. No logo or make on the bass, only the model #EG 467 - 2B sticker on the back neck plate

Most likely made in Japan.

Bass has that cool retro 60's vibe. Bass plays well on the fret board with a slightly higher action, no real fret buzz. Action can be adjusted for your own personal playing preferance. The bass appears to be mostly all original vintage parts. 2 pickups that work well and sound good, neck pickup is missing the A string screw pole piece but works - sounds a bit distorted, will probably be fixed by getting a replacement screw. Input jack makes a good connection and works well. Has 1 volume and tone knob, knobs work well and turn easily, tone has some static, pots are stable. Tone knob has a crack/crooked. Pickup selector switch works well with no static, missing cap. Has an adjustable bridge, missing bridge cover. 4 tuners that work well. Rosewood fret board with dot inlays. Nut appears to have been previously replaced, nut is secure, binding has small separation on top by nut. Strings need to be replaced. Bass has lots of scratches, scrapes, dings, chips, lacquer cracking, all fairly normal for a bass that is probably over 45 years old. Weighs 7-8 lbs. Measures 30" inches from saddle to the nut. No case, but as always will I spend 1/2 hour packing each bass - fully bubble wrapped and shipped in a guitar box with lots of protective packing.
