Penco was a name under Ibanez in the 70's in Japan More to come.. But PENCO gave Noel Reddin this Bass as a possible Noel Reddin Signature 1964 Lawsuite Era Fender Jazz Bass long before Fender did a Signature Bass with his name on it.. Noel painted it the color you see now.
IBANEZ Owned Penco, I only have the shell as you see in the pictures.. The Bridge and Tuners are not original, but are a Great Up=Grade! This Neck is Straight and even tho no electronics it plays like Butter with low action..
Noel passed at the age of 58..After he parted ways from the Jimi Hendrix experience and was replaced with Billy Cox playing Bass with Jimi Hendrix
The Hendrix family kept him from getting any music royalties from the Albums/Songs he played and recorded on.. and sell items threw out the years as he was not loaded with income....
Comes with 2 COA's showing providence's..
