Any Riverhead fans out here? They built some nice quality basses and guitars in the 80's. This is a quite rare RSB-900 from that golden Japanese era. A time when copies from the rising son were as good or better than the U.S.A. originals. This take on a Steinberger-copy needs no double ball end strings. This is not just for some bass peddling in the holidays. It is a 'serious bass' really. It has a beautiful piece of rosewood on the fretboard, alder body, maple neck, 33,5", 18 mm string spacing, 4 cm width at the nut and most importantly: it plays and sounds very well. With the Volume-Volume-Tone knobs this passive bass is quite versatile. IMHO the build quality is better than the old and new Hohners (the truss rod is actually working on this one). Compared with 'real' graphite composite Steinbergers this Riverhead is much lighter and 'down under' more organic sounding (whatever that means) than Steinbergers. No Steinberger bashing.. I like them too.. but differently..
