Dallas Tuxedo Bass

Dating from c.1959/60 and built in the UK by Dallas Arbiter this was the UK’s first “mass produced” electric bass guitar. This was also a first instrument for bass guitar legends like Mo Foster and Bill Wyman (who converted his to “fretless”) and they both still own their Tuxedos…Bill Wyman’s is on display at his “Sticky Fingers” restaurant.
