    I now have a bunch of pics of the bass pulled apart since I had so much interest (?)
    Here's a couple.
    PM me if you are truly interested in the bass I'll send more to your e-mail address.

    Is that the original finish, or a refinish?

    The jury is out about the refin. Looks like the factory finish is wearing down to white primer in places. Here's a pic of the "paint stick" area in the neck pocket.

    That was what I thought was the case. It looks like it could go either way, but the neck pocket wasn't suspicious looking. I'm interested in it, but a few of my toys would have to go first.

    The B necks are my favorite.

    Mine also! The necks that are too big or too small get my hand hurting. Can play a 'B' all night.

    Well, it's been a long and expensive journey for me to learn what I like and should stick with!

     
  16. ^ I'd be very keen to hear your journey (or maybe just your conclusions). PM me if you prefer.

    Could the OP confirm that this is in fact a B neck (1 5/8" nut)? I didn't see that explicitly stated in the posting, and I was under the impression that the C neck was still the standard neck offered until the early 70's.

    Thanks. Love the black/rosewood combo!

    I used to have a 68 P with a B neck.

    I now noticed that the photo of the neck date ends with a "B", meaning this one is a B. I did not mean to imply you couldn't get a B neck on a '69, but that C was standard based on the reading I had done. I thought in the '72-'73 range they switched to B as the standard neck.

    B necks became standard on Ps in mid '68 (at the same time as when the "TV" headstock logo started to appear).
