This bass was just re strung and a complete professional setup was done by our in store Guitar Tech which included intonation, neck, action and bridge adjustments to make this bass guitar play awesome!

HISTORY

Lyle guitars were distributed in the US solely by the L.D. Heater Music Company of Beaverton, Oregon, USA.

It has been suggested that the Matsumoku Company (manufactured many Lyle branded guitars) in Japan from (approximately) 1965 to 1972 until they were bought and shut down by Norlin, Gibson's parent company at the time.

In fact, Norlin never purchased Matsumoku, nor did they shut them down.

This rumor stems from a Gibson (Norlin) lawsuit against manufacturers (specifically Elger the parent company of Ibanez) copying their copyrighted "Open Book" headstock design.

L.D. Heater Music Company was owned by Norlin. Matsumoku, as a sub-contractor of Aria (Arai and Company) manufactured instruments including Gibson Epiphone, Skylark, Cutler, Aria, Aria Pro, Aria Diamond and Washburn from 1964 into the mid 80s.

As I plugged into an amp with this Lyle, I honestly wasn't sure of what to expect but to my pleasant surprise, I found the vintage tone of this bass hard to match and the action is smooth to the touch

If you are into classic 1960's style vintage instruments especially for the currant alternative sound. This has great appeal for you or perhaps you at one time owned a bass such as this

Regardless of what your scenario is this is a rare find and this item will go fast

BLEMISHES

A hairline crack in the seam of the back of the headstock

Some small scuffs nothing of structural compromise
