condition: fair
make / manufacturer: MAYA
model name / number: jazz bass copy
Rescued from an apartment cleanout, this Relic of the 70’s was in critical condition; the bridge was heavily corroded, it only had 2 strings, and no knobs or electronics, just 2 wires from the pickups. Someone tried to convert it to “active” electronics, but failed.
So… I replaced the strings, the bridge, all new electronics, and the pickguard screws. I also copper shielded the electronics bay.
I had a guitar tech wire things up, but the new pot for the neck bridge was defective from the factory(!), so the neck and bridge pickup have been wired together(jumped), and the bridge pot now controls volume for both. Neck pot is dead, but replaceable if you desire. Tone control works normally. It’s back to its “passive” self.
So to be clear, the body, neck, pickups, pick guard, and tuners are original, to the best of my knowledge. The “MAYA” brand was made in Japan, this one circa, 1977-78.
The body is in “vintage” condition, w/ plenty of chips, dings, and paint checking, that add to that vintage vibe. IT has a great “thump” to it, and I Really like the lacquered maple neck and fingerboard- very fast, IMHO. If I was right-handed, I would NOT be selling this.
This bass would be ideal for a beginner, or w/ a proper setup as a backup for gigs. If interested please CALL! show contact info , leave a phone number w/ message, and I’ll respond ASAP. NO TEXTS, NO CODES, NO EMAIL, NO B.S.- ALL WILL BE IGNORED. IF the ad is still posted, it’s still for sale!
