This mid-1970s Japanese-manufactured “Phase 3” Univox Hi-Flier bass is all-original and a great sounding short scale option. It features the Univox Phase 3 humbucking pickups (Univox switched over from the earlier P-90-style pickups around ’74) that give this bass a growling thumping tone. The bass features the black plastic tipped tuning machines, two saddle bridge with chrome cover, 3-ply white pick guard and truss rod cover, “V” and “T” volume/tone knobs, and 3-position pick up selector. The rosewood fret board has 20 frets with some wear but plenty of life left in them. It’s been professionally set-up by our in-store tech and plays gorgeously. The black finish has sustained some small scratches and chips along with some “less than finish deep” belt-scratches on the back of the body. There is a clear sticker on the back of the headstock for “Sommers Music Co” in Rainsville, AL. The front features the extremely ‘70s block letter “UNIVOX” logo and the distinctive crown-like top. If you’re looking for a great short-scale bass that is a perfect fit for moonlighting guitarists, this baby is it! Includes a chipboard case.
