1970s Japanese Commodore Bass

This shortscale Japanese bass from the 1970s looks very familiar. Although it bears the Commodore brandname, it is virtually identical to instruments bearing the Epiphone and Dorodo names. Compare this to the Dorado guitar we looked at in May; a similar looking bass appears in the 1973 Dorado catalog (and on the cover too!).

Such a pity someone has amateurishly "re-finished" this example in black spray paint.
