Cosmetic Condition: The bass has aged nicely; the finish is glossy with light and consistent finish checking, light scratches, and other various small chips and blemishes. The back of the body has mild buckle rash and some finish wear around the edges. The fingerboard binding appears to have been reglued in several spots, and there are a few chips in the fretboard from the previous refret. The back of the neck has several small dings and chips, but is mostly smooth. The seam on the back of the headstock has some finish cracking, but is secure.
Serial Number: 3920
Tech Notes: Plays well with medium-low action and light neck relief; the bass is currently strung with flatwound strings. The frets are narrow and medium height with minor wear. The date stamp inside the bass f-hole has partially worn away, but a "6" can be read after "F," which dates the bass to the 1960s.
