Cosmetic Condition: This vintage P-Bass shows moderate play wear. There are various areas where the yellowed finish has worn through to the alder - most notably on the back of the body and the back of the neck under the 1st through 7th frets. Many nicks, chips, and other nice blemishes exist throughout the body and neck. The hardware is lightly tarnished.
Serial Number: L69585
Tech Notes: Currently, set up with 45-100 gauge strings. The truss rod is tight with the neck sighting a slight "S" curve. The bass sets up well with minimal buzz and medium-low to low action despite the curve. The frets are narrow-tall showing minimal play wear. -- The tone pot, neck stamp, and serial number date from 1965.
