Tech Notes: The bass plays well with medium-low action and light neck relief, and is currently set up with flatwound strings. The bridge is close to bottomed-out on the treble side, but the action is comfortable and the bass plays cleanly. The pot codes date to 1968/1970, and the serial number dates the bass to 1971.
