This is a stunning example of a rare vintage guitar. Built on October 5th 1983 in Japan, this is a version of the Thunder II which was only made for a brief time before they moved onto making the Thunder III model.

In excellent condition and with original brown leather hard case, this thirty-seven-year-old bass was made by Matsumuko Industries in Japan and has been cared for excellently by its previous owner.

Superb tone, playability and feel – you can be playing fret-poppin funk one minute and rocking hard the next. A very diverse instrument indeed.
