Cosmetic Condition: The bass shows moderately heavy cosmetic wear; the finish has noticeable horizontal checking throughout the body, along with numerous small dings and finish chips. Some of these have been touched up with black. There are also two filled screw holes on the front of the body from the original bridge cover, which have also been touched up with black. The pickguard is original but is cracked in the corner by the output jack. The back of the neck is smooth and comfortable, and the headstock face has some checking as well.
Serial Number: S843683
Tech Notes: The bass plays well with medium action, and is currently set up with light gauge bass strings. The neck has moderate relief and the truss rod is at its maximum position, so heavier strings would not be recommended; the bass has been set up to play cleanly and comfortably in this position. The frets are tall with light wear. The serial number dates the bass to 1978.
