Neck: Maple with slab board rosewood board and clay dots, pencil neck date "8/61", 1 1/2" nut width, frets have some wear but plenty of life on them
Pickups/Hardware: Black bobbin pickups (bridge measures 7.70kOhms and neck at 7.51 ohms), '61 potentiometers, one tone and two volume controls (very early for this configuration instead of stack-knob)
Cosmetic Condition: Plenty of wear around the edges and some finger wear above the thumb rest. The back has a very interesting mark through the finish as well. The top clearcoat is almost gone. The pickguard has a broken tip from shrinkage. There are a couple of areas of vinyl wear on the back of the body and headstock. The headstock has a very unique result of checking and the neck has been nicely worn in. This bass has certainly been enjoyed over the years.
Modifications: The mutes and bridge and pickup covers are gone. The leads from the bridge pickup have been shortened. Holes for the upper pickup cover have been filled. The finger rest has been moved to the "modern" position. The neck has been refretted.
Weight: 8lbs 8oz
Case: Original brown tolex exterior, burnt orange interior hardshell - in good shape but worn
