    no kidding. I remind myself daily how difficult it is to flip basses right now and I don’t need this… I don’t… need this?

    String length? D or Eb neck?

    Sorry I don’t recall the length and the bass is at a local shop. I will have to get by and measure.
  10. Damn, that’s an early one. My ‘35 is #371. Folks, if you want one of the best plywood basses ever made to play roots music on, do not miss this bass. They’re so well made.

    May I ask who did the work on the neck?

    Aug 6, 2006
    Sure, but I have no idea. I’m not sure when the work was done, but was well before I bought it it. IMO the bass sounds and plays great (caveat, I’m a mandolin player not experienced bassist).
