Cosmetic Condition: The finish is in nice shape with some average dings and dents in the top but no structural damage. The back and sides have a fair amount of buckle rash that has worn through to the bare wood but overall the guitar is in nice shape for its age. The neck lacquer is fairly worn along the treble side but the neck is glossy for the most part with mostly minor dents and a few larger blemishes. The headstock has some wear near the nut and around the edges but it is looking good and free of any cracks or repairs. This Bass VI has held up nicely over the last 50 years!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.
