Technically it's not NOBD, but last week I came across something I HAD to have. I've long been a fan of teiscos and the vintage dept store guitars. I found a 30" scale bass on the cheap ($60) and I couldn't pick it up fast enough. Consequently, I can't put it down now either. The electronics are totally unmolested, someone had hacked a nut re-glue, and a couple fret ends are lifted. The glue is drying on the nut as I type this, and I'm Hopi g that once the fb gets a couple healthy doses of oil that the wood will keep the frets back in their place willingly. This will be the perfect bass for my new gig with my (dividers) bandmates as a stripped down trio as the house band for a local indie comedy showcase. It looks small (like a mustang-ish small) in the pic, but not in real life. I'm pretty smitten with the whole thing. Especially after the travesty with the hollowbody I restored that I couldn't use, because it was a feedback factory. 30" scale...whodathunk?
