When the Vintage VJ74 ReIssued Series of electric bass guitars were first launched, players and collectors were in awe of their high-quality tonewoods, exceptional build, superior hardware, incredible playability whilst finished in an array of stunning colours, they asked…“Can these bass guitars really sound and play as good as they look?”
Let the Vintage ProShop team of highly skilled luthiers loose on said basses, in this case an original VJ74 ReIssued Bass finished in a gorgeous Ventura Green with matching headstock, and you know that you are in for a special treat.
Now arriving as the Vintage ProShop VJ74PU2665, this exquisite instrument does indeed, mirror a 4 string electric bass that’s spent most of its life hard at work on the live circuit.
