Arbiter Bass

Arbiter bass. Dating from the late 1970s, this solid body SG style bass was built in Japan and marketed by Arbiter in the UK. Famously, a white example was used by Francis Charlton bass player of the cult band “Jilted John” (led by John Shuttleworth) – remember the immortal phrase “Gordon is a Moron”?!
