|Japan||late 60's||bolt on||violin||special||yes||yes|
| notes: Trading brand from Tandy-RadioShack. Most likely
made by Matsumoku, headstock like some Firstman guitars, body like
this Firstman bass model.|
|Funny fact: |
The original picture from the '69 Radio Shack catalog doesn't show the Realistic bass but the similar Matsumoku model that was already in production for Univox (and Greco) with different headstock and tailpiece, probably because the Realistic model was not yet available when the catalog was going to press.
