    I bought this bass and had it refinished by Bluesman Vintage. It was a fugly picnic-bench red stain, and I had them bring it back to the proper butterscotch.

    Bass has a 12-54 Tadeo Gomez neck. This era body got the forearm and belly contours around that time, so I figure it's a 54 or 55. Pots look right, cap is replaced, knobs are right. Bridge has a super low serial number on it. Pickup looks like it was rewound in 84 - maybe by the factory? Has a typical repaired E-tuner crack that Bluesman made sure was stable. The original guard was gone when I got it, but she has a nice replacement on there now. Tugbar was gone. Covers are repros. Tuners are all original and functional but all are bent slightly.

    One of the nicest parts: 8.25 lbs with the covers ON!!!

    She plays and sounds great, and let's face it - you just don't see these that often. When you do find a refin, it's $6500.

    I have my eye on something, so I'm going to fire sale this one. $5000 shipped and insured anywhere in the Lower 48. PayPal ok.

    Move fast, because if this thing I have my eye on goes, I will pull this off the market again….
