I found this bass on my local CL: http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/msg/4061328029.html
He's saying it was built in the mid-60's in Japan and the serial number is 009903. Like new condition. He found some site that has a write up of a similar bass that says it has a one-piece maple neck, bound rosewood fretboard, and 3 piece solid ash body. Haven't been by to look at it yet, but any thoughts? It seems like it would be kind of a cool one to snag. Is it worth checking out? What would you expect to pay for something like that? He's asking $500.
