The guitarist in the band I play bass for just bought this to play bass in my band . GC sold it as a Tiesco but it doesn't look like most of the ones I've seen. Definitely Japanese but can't place the brand.

Man, that's a good one. It does look very much like a Teisco, but there are so many unknown brands of that era.

Only thing I found was this. It's not exactly the same, but maybe some variation. Based on that I'd guess just what it says, Norma or Kimberly. The tuners are different but that doesn't mean they haven't been replaced at some point.

The bass Dillon posted is a Kimberly. I'm guessing it's one of those designs sold by a number of brands along the lines of Norma/National/Weltron/Jolana and a fuckload forgotten others. The black headstock reminds me more of Tesico Audition and National basses from this era than Norma or Kimberly, which I always see with bursted headstocks.




And by that I mean JCYPHE HALP

One on fleaBay. It's unmarked but being advertised as a Teisco and missing the bridge cover you see on a zillion japanese bass guitars.

I used to have a bass super similar to that the one in question. Always thought it was a Teisco.
