Tonika Bass - Rare early Russian Bass up for grabs on eBay now!
This Tonika bass is one for all you collectors of the bizarre and curious. It looks like something that Devo would play (only as a southpaw, Gerry Casale would play it upside-down making it look even weirder). According to the fantastic Cheesy Guitars website: "The legendary Tonika bass is the first Soviet-made electric bass. Made in the sixties together with Tonika guitar - the first Soviet mass - production electric guitar."
