Guyatone EB-1 Short Scale Bass White 1967
Guyatone EB-1 short scale bass, white, made in Japan 1967. This is a cute little Mosrite-esque offering, complete with five decades years of finish wear and a whole heap of charm. This features the outrageously short scale length of 24.75", same as most Les Pauls and nearly ten inches shorter than a regular bass. As such, it cranks out a thick, thumpy tone with very little sustain that's perfectly nasty and terribly good. The neck is straight and sturdy it really does play well; there's a lot to like. The finish checking and fading really adds a lot of depth to the look; this radiates vintage futuristic cool. Just add a fuzz pedal and a hefty amp and you'll be in surf/psych heaven in no time.
