1989 Rockoon (by Kawai) RB-855 Fretless 5-String Bass Guitar (Made in Japan)
"Rockoon is the high performance guitar created by the skilled and uncompromising craftsmanship of Kawai". Essentially these are the high end range from Kawai that were made in Japan in the 80's and 90's.
This is an absolute monster of a bass! USA White Ash body with a hard Maple neck and unmarked Rosewood fingerboard, weighs 4.5kg's. Full 860mm scale length with 24 "frets", the nut is around 45mm wide. Schaller 3-D5 bridge (with string-through capabilities on the B and E string) and Gotoh tuners. Loaded with Kawai JT-5 pickups with a master volume, individual tone knobs and a balance control to blend between pickups.
This is a lot of bass and needs to find a home with someone who has the talent to get the best out of it. Currently set up with flatwounds and plays great. Minor signs of cosmetic wear but overall great cosmetic condition.
