How cool is this bass! It is always exciting when we get a nice piece of vintage gear in the shop and this one got everyone jumping up to check it out. This has that sound and playability that many have tried to emulate but none have equaled. This naturally has finish checking throughout the instrument and some dings and buckle rash as you can see in the photos. On the back of the headstock some of the finish has lifted behind one of the tuners. We took the tuners off to make sure that everything was structurally sound and we were not disappointed. This does have the original hardshell case, but it is in pretty bad shape and is duck taped together a bit. Let us know if you have any questions. Thanks for looking!
