: : hi!
: : can anyone help about finding the japanese maker of "bass collection" basses
: : i have a 5 string one with EMG picks, are they original?
: : and a "simms watts" ge 100 amp, it seams nobody nows it.
: : thanks
: I have a four string bass collection. I belive the parent company is Meisel out of Germany. The Japanese maker is SGC Nanyo. I believe.
Yes, SGC Nayno is correct, I've read however that the parent company was the Sexton Guitar Company. I think Nanyo went bust a few years ago and was bought up, they moved out of Nagoya, Japan, apparently, my guess is to Korea or China.
I found a link to their site but it's dead now.
I don't think the EMGs are original, I have a 5-string too (SB-315, transp red, fronm around 1995, nice instrument) and the original pickups are SMCs. Bridge and tuners are Gotoh. Neck is 3-piece maple, the body on mine is alder but I've seen other options for body wood.
Never heard of your amp manufacturer. Is it any good?
