Serial Number: 18513349
Tech Notes: The bass sets up with flatwound strings, high action, and relief in the neck; there is no adjustable truss rod, and so the bass has been set up to play in its current condition. The frets are wide and low with mild wear. The pot codes date the instrument to the 1960s.
