There is a bass similar to this hanging around my place.

Memphis

Its an enigma, isn't it. I have a Lincoln bass, same shape but neck-through. Its identical to others branded Asama, and Memphis. Torchy is another name people associate with these.

There are various discussion threads about these:

They are very similar to these:

Some show pics with Made in Japan stickers or neck plates. People speculate on Tombo/Morris, or Maya in Kobe; some even say Korean - why not, they could easily be copies. My hunch? Probably Japanese, may not be Matsumoku...

Any other thoughts on these?
