    This bass is a real road warrior...too many bumps and bruises to mention.
    But, all the parts are original and the cherry colour is very rare. The only thing changed was the truss rod bolt, and a few tuner screws.
    It has a new bone nut as well.
    The hardware is dull but will polish up pretty well.
    Killer sounding and playing bass.
    The only "issue" is that the neck was professionally repaired. These necks are 2 pieces. The headstock came undone(Nothing broken, just old dried up glue), and, instead of just re-glueing it, the entire fretboard was removed so that the headstock could be cleaned and glued back properly...it was not cheap and was done by one of the finest luthiers in Montreal. The joint is 100% smooth and 100% solid.
    Truss rod is super smooth and the neck can get as flat as you want. Most of the finish is still on the neck and it wouldn't be too hard to re-finish the bare parts from the re-glue
    ready to rock!!
    No case, no bridge cover. I have the truss cover but its in 2 pieces.

    650$ plus shipping from Montreal, Canada. Probably 50-75$ depending on your location.

    Mojo to spare for sure, definitely for a fan of relics.
    Weighs around 8lbs using the highly accurate bathroom scale method.

    C'mon folks....Fender charges 800 bucks for a relic job like this. The relicing on this one is free of charge, it comes with the bass!

    How can you not justify it? Did the bass you just buy have this much awesomeness??????
    My bassist used it last night at practice and it sounded great.
