Tech Notes: The bass plays well with medium action and light neck relief, and is currently set up with extra light 39-96 flatwound strings. The truss rods have limited adjustability, and so heavier strings would not be recommended. The frets are tall with minor wear present. The serial number dates the bass to 1980.
