Body: 1966 body in candy apple red

Neck: 1963 maple neck and rosewood fretboard with dot inlays, neck stamp reads "7 DEC 63 A"

Pickups/Hardware: Two single coil pickups (one grey bottom, probably from '66 and one black bottom, probably from '63), one volume and two tone controls with 1966 potentiometers, and a finger rest

Cosmetic Condition: The entire body has some nice, horizontal checking. There's some finish wear along the edges, some of which is caused by deep dings there. The top and back are fairly clean with some very minor buckle rash on the back. The neck has some nice finish wear from play and a few minor scratches. The headstock has a few minor scratches here and there and is in good shape overall. This Jazz bass is gorgeous!

Modifications: The bridge pickup has been replaced. The body and neck have been combined together and neither is original to the other. The neck has been refretted. The pickup covers have been replaced, the original ones are included. The pickguard has right angle cuts at corners, probably from having other pickups in place.

Weight: 9lbs 12oz

Case: Non-original hardshell
