SOLD for 7 hundred and something.
Check out "The Ripper". It has its share of dings, scrapes, rubs, chips, dents, pitting, oxidation, wear, and aging, but it appears to be 100% original. It's an awesome bass.
The truss rod, tuners, and bridge all work as they should. The frets have significant wear. The bass plays fine as-is, but with some attention to the frets, it would be like playing a new Ripper.
The electronics are really cool, including a 4-way rotary switch that gives different combinations of pickups in both series and parallel, and a serial out-of-phase setting. The master volume and 2 tone controls work as designed.
The bass is remarkably light. It weighs 8lb-4oz. Presumable, this one is made of alder. The fingerboard is ebony.
The original case is included. Other than one bent hinge (repairable), it is in very good condition. It has no funky smells or pet-hair issues. It is plush and purple on the inside- as were the '70's.
The original warranty card is included. It hasn't been filled out. It indicates that you have 10 days from the date of purchase ;-)
The price is $825 plus actual shipping
