Sunburst, with some cracks in the finish (check pics). Non original pickup, and some kind of metal nut. I would say the nut is also not original, but I don't know for sure. You can view the pickup better in this thread: Need help identifying pups in my Vox Apollo
I may be guessing a little on the date. It was sold to me as a 67, and they were made in either 67 or 68. The effects side has been bypassed, because I used this bass in the studio and there was much less noise with the effects cut out of the loop.
This bass sounds nice and thumpy (very hofner-esque), and has been used many times on recordings and gigs. I found a red one about five years ago and that is the one I use now. If I can find an mp3 to throw online so you can check it out, I will.
No case, but it will be packed well.
