This Was One of the First Electric Basses Produced in the UK!
This Dallas Tuxedo Bass dates from about 1959/60 and was built in the UK by Dallas Arbiter.
This makes it one of the UK’s first “mass produced” electric bass guitar!
Not only that, but this model 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.
