This bass is in EXCELLENT condition. The condition of this bass is remarkable for a bass that is 30+ years old. This bass plays and sounds fantastic!!!The one piece Maple neck is in fantastic shape, the original frets are showing no signs of wear, the neck is straight, truss rod functions perfectly, the edges of the neck have no finish wear or chipping that is so common on vintage maple necks and there is no string damage or finish wear on the finger board.
The body has the original paint finish that is still smooth and glossy but it has taken on an orange peel look to it. There are a few very small dents and some very small scratches here and there but none that have removed finish or paint to the bare wood.
This is what was called a B-40 model, It is a FULL 34 inch scale like the b-34 model. The neck has a very nice skunk strip running down the back and the decal is perfect.
This is a nice light bass with great balance to it and I would guess it is the range of about 8 8 1/2 pounds. The bass is currently strung with Thomastik Infeld flatwound strings.
All original parts are included in the sale.
The original HSC is included, the case has its share of nicks and scrapes with 1 hinge and 1 clasp which are broken.
$750.00 + shipping (CONUS only).
