1960s Teisco NB-1 Bass Guitar (MIJ)

Made by Teisco/Kay company in the late 1960s, this quirky single pickup bass has all the 60s surfy vibes you could dream of with an offset Jaguar style body, full scale neck and super cool striped pickguard with a matching headstock plate! 

Mahogany body and neck with a rosewood fingerboard, the bass plays very nicely with a perfectly straight neck and loads of fret life left. We've upgraded the wiring harness with new pots and a Switchcraft jack to keep things extra reliable and let the single square pole pickup pump out epic vintage tones (important to note: Teisco wired their tone controls in reverse so 0 is 10 and 10 is 0 - we've kept it this way with the new harness). Aside from this upgrade she's all original and plays like a total dream. The bass is a comfortable at 3.7kg and very nicely balanced and has just had a professional setup with 45-100s.
